1860ish Bonnet

To kick off the 1860s I whipped up a new bonnet to get me moving. I wanted to avoid any of my usual colors and went with some bolder choices. For me anyway.
To make this one instead of cutting out the shape I unraveled the straw hat, sewing on strips to get close to the shape I was aiming for.
And there she be.  I'm in love with the colors together and the flowers. I made this mostly from my stash. I purchased the ribbon and trim which I dyed.
