A Year in Millinery Fashion – 1864

Bonnets by no means follow the outline of the face, byt are simply lower in front than those which have been so perseveringly worn during the last two years. The sides of the bonnet
are very narrow, being almost close to the cheeks; so little space is left that there is only sufficient for one quilling of blonde at each side, or, if a colored crepe cap is adopted, for one narrow row of box, pleating. In some instances, the front is made very wide at the top, so as to allow a superabundance of trimming in the inside; but the more oval form appears to be
generally preferred. (Peterson’s, February, 1864)
