Here is the finished straw bonnet. This depicts the 1850-1860's era. It is called a spoon bonnet, and has the slanted profile.
The earlier bonnet that I showed had a less sloping brim. This was created with vintage millinery straw over a buckram base.
It is lined in reproduction cotton fabric in a green and cream colorway. The trimmings are all antique and vintage-polished cotton ribbon, silk satin ribbons, and several velvet and silk millinery pieces.
