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 shallow brim (2" deep on the SM, 3" on the LG) that fits close to the face and a 21" (SM) or 22" (LG) circumference crown. You can order the bonnet plain or trimmed in a style simliar to that shown (Ribbons and flowers in your choice of colors). 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.

Please specify ribbon color

This bonnet (blue ribbons, white flowers) was recently seen in the Sight and Sound film, I Heard the Bells, the story of how William Wordsworth penned the poem which became the Christms Carol, "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day".
