Regency bonnets and hats are so elegant! Not to mention they are so fun to make! I just recently finished making this Regency bonnet. I inspired mine from The Merry Dressmaker 's tutorial.
This is what I started out with. My mom had picked this up for me awhile back, but I never actually wore it. Who know I would end up making a lovely bonnet out of it!
|I removed the brown crown and used the straw brim.|
The crown is made from a matte satin/crepe and lined with a cotton. The rosette is handmade from the same crown fabric and the darker green ribbon that was used for the ties.
|I love how the rosette turned out!|
I am really happy with how it turned out! I am planning on attending a Jane Austen event in a couple of weeks and look forward to wearing it than!
