Today’s Millinery 

Today both Serenity and Galaxy are offering bonnets. 

First is a green straw spoon bonnet blocked on Serenity. I made this one so it will fit a smaller, rounder face. It was really hard to get the color of the straw in today light. 

Next is a natural straw cottage bonnet blocked on Galaxy. This bonnet has a gentle rise through the crown and a round brim with just a hint of flare. 

Both bonnets are available in my Etsy shop.

    Ignore the text on this one. I would date it earth an 1865 and Not call it a poke. The decorating is simple and lovely.

  3. Here is a nice one:
