Available in a variety of colors these drawn bonnets are just waiting for you to embellish them. The bonnets are made out of soft blended fabrics with long ties just right for that perfect bow. The bonnet is lightweight and easy to wear. Our bonnet features a broad brim with 4 drawn bands so it sits nicely on the head and a pouch style back to accommodate many of the hairstyles and buns worn during the era. The bonnet is tied with simple satin ribbon. Our bonnet is drawn over plastic boning, so you will not experience the crushing or caning breaks that can happen with cane drawn bonnets. It is not possible to tell that plastic is used until you actually touch the boning. We make our bonnets out of blended fabrics so they are not affected or marked by rain. A simple metal comb is stitched within the brim to help keep the bonnet secure to the head.

This listing is for the basic bonnet. You have the option of white, cream or the same fabric interior for your bonnet. I have included a ribbon rosette to add some simple detail to the bonnet. I have also shown pictures of a velvet adornment, additional flowers, ribbon bows and a folded ribbon trim which are not included but will give you some decorating ideas. If you wish an adored bonnet please contact me for available trims, feathers and ribbons.

This drawn capote style bonnet is perfect for your Regency and early 19th Century impressions. The bonnet is designed after the early Capote style bonnet that appeared in the 1790’s and continued into the 1800’s . A capote - literally, French for hood - is characterized by a stiffened fabric brim framing the face, a soft gathered or pouch-like crown, and ribbon ties extending from the crown. The American prairie sunbonnet and the poke style drawn bonnets of the 1830’s and 40’s are a descendant of the capote.

I currently have: slate blue, navy, deep forest green, wine, yellow, white, cream and royal purple. Other colors are available, just contact me for current choices. I also offer this bonnet in Black for Mourning
