Another Regency bonnet-stove pipe purple and green

r




This is the finish to a tall Regency bonnet. Made from deep black cherry silk taffeta and lined in poison green silk taffeta fabrics.

The back has striped rosettes and a curled chartreuse green ostrich feather:


The front has a green antique silk ribbon, antique metal lace, an antique bullion star, and deep red feather sprays:

I wanted to make a bonnet in a darker colorway and chose this combination.

  2. Thank you both so much-wish there was more time for more hat making, it is the best way to concentrate everything fun about costuming into a small project.
