A Pennsylvania Sun Bonnet

Ann D. shared this bonnet that she found in Pennsylvania on The Civilian Civil War Closet Facebook page, and I asked if I could share/save it.  I was DELIGHTED to see that I seem to be making more authentic looking bonnets!  I love being able to see the detail of this one, especially on the inside!  It reminds me of the Godey's 1857 bonnet.  Ann is looking forward to sharing more living history/clothing construction at her blog, Household 6 Diva soon!

Oh my word!
I found your site when googling sunbonnet patterns. (I've started gardening and now totally understand my great grandmother's love of- sunbonnets.)
Your site is beautiful and so are the bonnets. I mean it, it brought a tear to my eye!

Thank you for sharing.
