It has a great method of attaching the body of the bonnet to its brim, which gives it a nice dressy look. The bonnet is sized to the head with a drawstring in the back. Instructions include several ideas to customize your bonnet, including different brim treatments, fabric and trim ideas.

BRIM: Some of the choices available to you for decorating your brim are:
1) Lace at the edge of the brim
2) Ruffled fabric at the brim edge.
3) Embroidery on the brim
4) Contrasting or fancy stitching to topstitch the brim
5) The brim in one color, the body a different color.
6) Leave the brim plain

Soft fabric bonnets were the most common bonnets of the 19th century. They came in many shapes and sizes, but all served one major purpose….to protect the wearer from the elements. “ Ladies of fashion” thought these styles of bonnet to be “prairie or frontier”, but many women could not afford, or did not have access to the shaped bonnets and hats, so they made fabric bonnets and added trims and ruffles to dress them up.

2/3 yd of 45” wide basic fabric for body of the bonnet and brim
