I am having some trouble getting into my next sewing project. I am supposed to be making my 1907 afternoon gown for next weekend, but no motivation to even fixing my pattern and cutting the jumperskirt. So instead, I decided to decorate my 1830s bonnet. I will be wearing it for History Alive later this year. So I really do not need it yet, but I really do love decorating bonnets. I have pictures. It is the bonnet I wore for our regency picnic last year, but it is better suited to 1830s, which I have been desperate to make ever since buying Wives and Daughters on DVD. So the bonnet is lovely silk, and I decorated it with white and blue bonnets, a white silk bow and pretty blue flowers.
