Today’s Millinery 

I added two coarse straw bonnets to the shop today. These are pieces I had on display this summer. 

First is this Romantic Era cottage style bonnet, that could be called a poke bonnet. I do like this shape. I should make another in fine plait. 


Next, is this Civil War era cottage style bonnet. This is a nice bonnet for a poorer impression or one where your character has made her own bonnet from hand braided straw due to the blockades. I think this will best suit someone with an average to small head.
