Historical Sew Fortnightly #0 - done!
#0 (the bonus challenge): Starting Simple – due 31 December. Finish a project, make a very simple garment, or something you have made before. I finished the bonus today! I got out the 18th C bonnet I'd started in Taylor's (of Dames a la Mode) class at Dress U and finished it today! I took some wide silk satin ribbon I had and pleated and tacked it to the bonnet as well as added a front bow to emmulate this sort of look of the top one on this research page of Taylor's as well as the hat Mrs. Dashwood wears in Sense and Sensibility. Here's what I ended up with, I had to try it on with my wig but stayed in my modern clothes so please excuse the black thermal shirt!! LOL!
