From my Antique Replica Line, this bonnet started with a wired buckram base. The exterior is pale pink antique silk and trimmed with vintage trims, millinery flowers, and cream silk satin ribbon. The interior brim is lined with row upon row of ruched silk. The bows and ruching are made from new silk and ribbon that has been antiqued as well, in keeping with the rest of the bonnet. This bonnet is wired, so can be shaped in different styles to compliment your dolls coiffure. The bonnet will fit a doll with a 5-6" head. I have shown the bonnet modeled on one of my 12" Ultimate Fashions. She has a 5.5" head. My doll is not for sale, but more than willing to share this bonnet with you!
Layaway is available on all my items. Please message me to work out the details before purchasing.
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. This bonnet is made from both old and new items.
