My bonnet

Postby Miss Elisabeth » Tue Jul 12, 2005 4:48 pm

I made this last year, I promised pictures- here they are! The back is messed up a bit. I am resewing the frill at the back.

Man, I can't do bonnets at all, but the shape of yours really fits your face well. Nice! :)

That is the biggest hunk of nonsense I've ever heard!!! If you can make the dresses and costumes of the victorian era, You CAN make a bonnet! Try "From the NEck Up" I never knew you could either until I read it! I whipped that bonet up only a coupl emonths after I learned how to sew! And a hint for beginers-use poster board instead of wire. It's not "corresct, but you get the same stiffness and effect of the wire. Heavy interfacing works too!

Yes, From The Neck Up is a great book (published right in my own Twin Cities!). I use it all the time.
Great bonnet, Miss E.! Isn't millinery fun?
