Old Silk Baby Bonnet and Booties

This is the Silk Baby Bonnet that goes with the gown you saw on my last post.

It is lovely.  But the silk is in bad condition.

For this reason, my Friend decided to copy the gown and bonnet.

The scallops on the Bonnet Brim have hand stitched scallops, also edged with lace as was the gown. 

The Bonnet Crown is finished with Scallops as well.

I thought you sewing friend would like to see the inside of the bonnet - where the Crown is attached to the Bonnet.

The outfit included Silk Booties that match.

Close up of the embroidery on the Bootie toe.

This is just such a beautiful set!

Next time, I will show you the gown and slip that my Friend made.  She did a wonderful job reproducing the garments.  And she made it using both hand and machine stitches.

Until then....Jeannie
