Here is a snapshot of a recently completed red shot- silk drawn (or gathered) bonnet. It is the same color and style as the one shown on my website.
This is a soft bodied bonnet. I developed the pattern for this bonnet a few years ago. It is super light weight and not bulky at all. It is perfect for 1840s, 1850s, and even 1860s era impressions. The ties are made of black cotton satin.
This bonnet is off to a very kind lady in Kansas! Enjoy!
