Beautifully hand crafted and authentic regency bonnet dating from 1812-20.
This bonnet will certainly make you the envy of all the ladies at your regency event.
I am extremely proud of this piece it really is worthy of any feature film or television drama. Beautifully crafted, using skills gained working in the theatre and film industry and in the millinery departments of the costume houses who create the costumes for all the major period dramas and feature films the world over including all the well known Jane Austen adaptations.
Days of hand sewing go into the creation of these bonnets. Unlike other bonnets available on the market I never use modern plastic trims or glue the fabrics down, this is made entirely by hand as it would have been 200 years ago.
The bonnet is crafted from ivory silk dupion over a wired buckram frame based on original styles of the era and fashion plates of the time. The tall tapered crown and large face framing French style brim create a very flattering oval halo effect around the face. This style was very popular in the mid teens to early 1820's and has a softer look than the sharp military styles of earlier years. The crown is lined in cotton and trimmed with rich cranberry red taffeta ribbons in rosettes. The left side of the crown is trimmed with a gorgeous vintage spray of handmade wired glass berries in olive green, black and cranberry red with variegated silk leaves and tiny wired twigs. Ideal for historical re-enactors, Jane Austen fans and Napoleonic societies.
Bonnet size Approx. 22 1/2" Lots of room in the crown for fuller hair styles.
Your bonnet will be sent to you carefully packed and boxed to reach you in perfect condition.

Unfortunately due to some of my original designs and images being used and reproduced by others without my permission I have had to implement Copyright on all my work.

All designs, item descriptions and images used on the listings may NOT be reproduced without prior consent from the store owner.
I am always happy to create custom gowns and accessories to your own designs or work with you to come up with the outfit of your dreams.
All custom items are made in your own choice of fabrics and trimming, supplied by the buyer unless otherwise noted in the listing description or arranged with the seller. A small consultation charge to cover the time spent confirming design details with you and sourcing materials may be charged. Items will be made to the exact measurements supplied by the buyer so be honest!! This is NOT the measurements you would buy in a shop. I highly recommend having someone take the measurements for you as it is near impossible take correct measurements yourself.
In some circumstances such as express orders I may be able to source materials for you locally or use fabrics I may have in stock to save time. Please note this will incur a small charge for my time, travel etc.
Please convo me with your ideas and I will work with you to confirm the design choice, fabric, trims etc. I will then create a custom reserved listing for you with all the finalized design details and appropriate shipping costs. This will appear in the custom orders section of my store and I will inform you as soon as the listing is available to purchase. You will then need to purchase the reserved listing and send your fabric and trims etc. to me. As soon as the parcel has arrived I will contact you to confirm its arrival (please let me know before hand if you are sending it recorded signed for so I can ensure I am in to sign for it). I will then begin creating your design for you.
The completion date of custom orders will depend on my current working schedule and the number of orders I have in at the time. Certain times of year get very busy. I will confirm a delivery date with you before the order is placed. I will keep you updated with the progress of your order and send photographs of the finished item before shipping to confirm you are happy with your purchase. The item will then be carefully packaged and shipped.
If you have any questions or require an express order don't hesitate to contact me. I'm here to help.
Thanks so much for looking.
