Curious ribbon bonnet

Occasionally, I peruse Ebay looking for interesting and inspiring original garments. My most recent search brought up this curious mid 19th century ribbon bonnet. It seems like the internal buckram frame is covered soley with ribbons! Very unique!

About Susan

Hi! My name is Susan and I am a historian, seamstress, teacher, mother, and wife. My passion for history has manifested itself in the art of recreating clothing from different periods of time. Growing up in the American South, I am heavily schooled in the art of recreating clothing from the 19th century. After nearly a decade of immersing myself primarily in the Victorian period, I found the need to branch out and explore other periods of time. However, it is my connection with the American South and the clothing of rural America that continues to be the driving force behind my designs.
