This sweet little bonnet has been sewn meticulously by hand, using narrow antique straw. Very hard to work with but so worth it I think, as the bonnet looks original! It is trimmed with cream silk satin ribbon and antique wax millinery flowers. The interior is lined with very old pale pink cotton gauze and white cotton gauze. It will fit a doll with a 5.5 to 6" head circumference, either a small French Fashion or an all-bisque. I have shown the bonnet modeled on a 12" Ultimate Fashion doll. She is not for sale, but happy to share her bonnet with you!
With the high cost of original antique bonnets and accessories, this is the next best thing; something newly created from all vintage or antique materials! I like to use vintage or antique materials when I make my doll hats & accessories. If not, I use items that were available at the time; cotton, silk, straw, leather. No polyester or plastic! All of my items are made by hand, with special attention to detail. Please keep in mind that vintage/antique materials may show some slight age or wear, but I feel this just adds to the charm and authenticity of the item.
If payment is not received or no payment arrangements have been discussed within 5 days, invoice will be canceled and item(s) added back to inventory.
Thanks for visiting my shop!
