Fun Fifty’s Bonnet

???????????????????????????????I wrapped up a tremendously enjoyable custom bonnet today. The recipient is truly one of those fun customers that you jump to work for. Together we picked out the flowers and ribbons for this 50s bonnet. The amazing striped ribbon is a vintage piece from Italy. The flowers are a combination of vintage and current done in luscious velvet including the strawberries.


Thank You, B, for asking me to make this bonnet for you. I hope you enjoy wearing it as much as I enjoyed making it.

  1. I think it’s lovely!

  2. Are you still making bonnets for sale? If so do you have a website or how do I contact you for more information? Thank you.

  3. Hi Paula,
    Yes, I am still making straw bonnets. I am primarily making the forms, which I offer through my Etsy store.
    Right now, I only have a child’s bonnet left. The big Gettysburg events and the local Netherfield Ball came at th same time this year, causing demand to out cast time to sew the bonnets.
    I hope to wrap up the ball sewing this week and dive back into some bonnets.
    I do also occasionally decorate the bonnets fully, such as this 50s bonnet. I work with the wearer to pick out ribbons and flowers that suit them.
