This Bonnet is quite old. Wish I had a true date.
This Bonnet takes my breath away!
It is literally covered in Bermuda Faggoting. Which was why I bought it in the first place.
Close up of the Bonnet Back.
Because the decorative stitch is a pulled stitch instead of drawn work, it doesn't need to follow the "straight of grain", giving you more design opportunities.
Inside (wrong side) of the Bonnet.
Inside of the Bonnet - crown. The top of the crown seam is nicely finished.
The bottom.....not so much.
Did you notice the strings. They will pull up the Bonnet to fit snugly.
The workmanship is truly beautiful.
I so wish the finest of materials were still available.
Look for beauty and you will...
Have a happy day!
