I'm back... New Primitive Prairie Demo Bonnet

Needed to make one of my child's prairie bonnets today for an order,
so while in the sewing room, I designed a new Prairie Bonnet pattern.

So do...tell me what you think

This bonnet is a basic cloth bonnet but I added some features to
fancy it up a bit.  It has a long bavolet (curtain), small ruffle accents and ties.

I think it's a keeper with a few tweaks to the pattern.

One problem with making this bonnet...there is a TON of hand-gathering to be done...and I don't like that, LOL..

This demo bonnet may be for sale... if anyone is interested.

Opinions please,


  1. Hi Trace, you know I love bonnets, and yours is awesome! I love it, you make the most wonderful prims, I admire your talent. Hugs, Lecia

  2. very nice! elegant, actually--like a Sunday go to meeting bonnet!

  3. It looks very nice, so old fashioned. I can see some old lady like Tasha Tudor wearing it.

  4. Hi Traci, wonderful job creating a elegant, yet primitive bonnet. I like Linda's thought about it being a "Sunday go to meeting bonnet".
    Hugs, Mary
