New Bonnet in Shop

This is the classic spoon bonnet shape popular during the early 1860s. It is hand sewn in a really nice milan straw. I am very impressed with the strength of this straw. My hands got pretty tired working with it.

I really need to make a stand with an angled/shaped top to hold the bonnets better. I have the shape in my head. I just have to make it.
