I added new trimmings to my plain, linen bonnet.
The bonnet, belt (and outfit) were partly inspired by this costume from Cranford worn by the hilarious Miss Pole.
The feathers are real Peacock feathers and Goose feathers that I cut down to size.
The ties are organza ribbon and a loose-woven blue cotton seam tape.
(I love mixing blue and orange! Have you noticed?)
The medallion I made with organza ribbon, flat seam lace, and seed beads. I loved adding the beads! I hope to do more of this in the future!
I added a gathered organza ribbon around the inside of the brim and at the back of the neck. Everything is tacked in place with large stitches so that when I wish to change the trim, I can simply snip the thread and pull it off.
The belt is made of darker organza ribbon and the same blue cotton seam tape. The 'buckle' in the front is brown embroidery floss covering a plastic ring off of an old camisole. That back is secured with a snap.
Love to you all!
