Civil War Spoon Bonnet







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.

  1. I love my bonnet! I'm so glad I stumbled upon your etsy shop! And your lovely creation is the envy of my fellow Civil War re-enactors...Thanks!
