Original 1860's Quilted Silk Bonnet - Yum!

Just popping in for a minute to share this gorgeous silk bonnet I saw while browsing Vintage Textile, as is my customary habit to do once every few months or so. Isn't it beautiful?! It looks fairly easy to copy too. . .
I just love the perky little flat bows at the top! So adorable!
Malachi is stricken with croup at the moment, so I must return to my poor sick little guy, but wanted to share this with other antique-fashion-lovers. :) Love,


  1. Oh, I've seen that one too, and I love it!

  2. How sweet! What a fun project, I can't wait to see your re-creation of it.

    Your poor little guy. I hope he feels better soon. There is definitely a lot of junk going around, Little Miss caught something and has been miserable for the past few days. Your family will be in my prayers.

  3. Very nice! I love the color--it seems like it'll match a variety of colors :)


Thank you for your lovely thoughts!
