This is my most elaborate millinery project to date. It is right from "English Womens Clothing in the Nineteenth Century" by C. Willett Cunnington. It is the bonnet a la Marie Stuart. It is made from a frame of buckram with millinery wire covered with a red brown velvet. For the underside of the brim I used the dull side of a satin in radial pleats. The satin was left over from the dress that this hat was made to compliment. I finished it with a vintage panne ribbon, ostrich feathers and a antique Victorian button made of mother of pearl and enameled brass.
