Today’s Millinery 

Today both Serenity and Galaxy are offering bonnets. 

First is a green straw spoon bonnet blocked on Serenity. I made this one so it will fit a smaller, rounder face. It was really hard to get the color of the straw in today light. 


Next is a natural straw cottage bonnet blocked on Galaxy. This bonnet has a gentle rise through the crown and a round brim with just a hint of flare. 


Both bonnets are available in my Etsy shop.

  1. How would you decorate the cottage straw bonnet? Thanks

  2. A ribbon bavolet and ties the foster the wearer. A little color inside. Shallower flowers than a spoon.
    Here is an earlier example the is boldly colored. The flowers should be high in the brim, rather than on the sides for 1860. http://www.nationaltrustcollections.org.uk/object/1349753
    Ignore the text on this one. I would date it earth an 1865 and Not call it a poke. The decorating is simple and lovely.
