New bonnet-black regency cap
This custom bonnet is an all black piece with pink and blue trimming. The bonnet cap portion is silk taffeta. The brim is sewn with antique millinery braid from the 1910's era. It is a type of crinoline with black velvet and impossible to replicate today.
One side incorporates a 1920's pink feather, edwardian era velvet flowers in muted blue,
and antique metal laces:
The other side has an antique ostrich plume spray in black, and edwardian millinery rosette in pink
Per the clients request, the back was finished with an antique silk thread covered button, and metal bullion tassel.
I must add gratuitous photos of my sleeping pets. Anytime I frequent the sewing area, they gather to hang out with me.
