Jane
Decorating your own bonnet (or retrimming last year's model) was a common past time in Jane Austen's day. This is a child sized cottage style bonnet, similar in style to many you'll find in Regency fashion plates and portraits, like the included one from Atelier de Modistes Le Bon Genre 28, c.1807. It features a small brim (2" deep) that fits close to the face and a 21" circumference crown. I've included additional photos of the bonnet trimmed up. This listing is for the plain bonnet only. This Jane bonnet represents my third attempt at bonnet design. It is created from woven synthetic "straw" type braid. It is not straw, but because it is synthetic, it holds up well for packing, playing and all-weather purposes.
