Woven Bonnets

The past couple weeks I’ve been working on a series of woven bonnets. Each of these bonnets was blocked on an original, antique bonnet block. I tried a different technique for finishing the edges this time. I am pleased with the finished edge I achieved with the wiring and abaca plait.

I have such a love<>hate for these woven bonnets. I love the pretty look of the woven bonnets. I hate how the sharp edges of this material cuts my hands and arms as I work.

Currently, 4 of these are in the shop. The 5th is going the the Civil War event at GCVM for the millinery interpretation. It will be available after the event. I love the look of this particular weave so much, I have two more in my cart waiting.

  1. These are so fun! It’s unfortunate that the materials are frustrating to work with. :/
