|I'm going to make a bonnet covered with fabric; it's going to be the same shape as the paper yarn version I have on here.|
|The hem is very nice and full, pattern after Jean Hunnisett|
|I really like the collar and the petal sleeve caps!|
As said, I wanted to make a bonnet to go with the pelisse and I drafted a pattern for one after the paper yarn bonnet I made last year. It took a little tweaking, but frankly wasn't too difficult and I'm very pleased with the result. I still need to find fabric with which to cover the hat; I have no idea what colour woud be good. Maybe red like the long ribbon I have on the paper yarn bonnet? I'd like to have the bonnet match as many of my existing garments as possible. Black seems a bit severe and I don't think white would work. I don't want to use the pelisse fabric on the bonnet too, that would be too matchy-matchy.
|Silly hats day: the crown of the bonnet on a test run|
|Gettin sillier, though I like the shape of this hat and the brim|
|I need to shorten the corners of the brim a little, they keep catching on my shoulders|
