Decorating your own bonnet (or retrimming last year's model) was a common past time in Jane Austen's day. This cottage style bonnet, similar in style to many you'll find in Regency fashion plates and portraits, like the included one from Atelier de Modistes Le Bon Genre 28, c.1807. It features a shallow brim (2" deep on the SM, 3" on the LG) that fits close to the face and a 21" (SM) or 22" (LG) circumference crown.

This custom bonnet was designed specifically for Austentation. It is created from woven synthetic "straw" type braid. It is not straw, but because it is synthetic, it holds up well for packing, playing and all-weather purposes.
This bonnet arrives plain, ready to trim in your choice of ribbon and flower colors. I have included some sample photos to get your ideas flowing. The final image shows the child's sized bonnet on a 6 year old for sizing purposes.

This bonnet (blue ribbons, white flowers, as shown below) was recently seen in the Sight and Sound film, I Heard the Bells, the story of how William Wordsworth penned the poem which became the Christms Carol, "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day".
