Larger, High Brim Bonnets

I have three larger, higher brim bonnets to offer you this week. These were each blocked on my larger, high brim block. The top of the brim has a feature I don’t offer often: a slightly squared top of the brim. One is made with a beautiful golden straw plait. Two are blocked from woven sisal, in two natural shades.

Comparison of shades.

I am going to attempt to make a couple woven bonnets each month. The two milliners who were making blocked woven bonnets retired, leaving a void. I hope to fill this just a little. The process for these is quite different from the sewn straw plait pieces I usually make. I am learning the nuances as I go. Straw plait will remain my passion and focus.
