The Dickens Faire!

We are planning a trip to the Dickens Faire and on their website they encourage attendees to come in costume, if possible, to add to the ambiance of the Old London scene.  I have a couple of bonnets that could fit the time and am in the process of making another.

I watched "Middlemarch" to get a quick idea of the period bonnets.  I made a quick pattern for one and am pretty happy with the results.  It should really have a larger brim but I think I will like wearing it more it I can see what is going on at the fair.  Otherwise it is like wearing blinders!  It isn't spot on, but its ok.

So far:

Now, inside the top needs to be finished and the embellishment needs to take place.
