This is a DIGITAL sewing pattern for a 1830´s bonnet and a pelerine or pelerine collar commonly worn over dresses.

The bonnet is made from buckram (a stiffened, loose weave millinery fabric) and reinforced by a frame made from round weed, this can be replaced by millinery wire if wanted. This base will be encased with felt or flannel to give the bonnet a smooth surface before it will be covered with the fashion fabric.

The pelerine collar is made from cotton or silk fabric, matching the dress.

Wonderful bonnet pattern!

This was my first ever handcrafted hat I've made, and it was a great experience with clear instructions and a well drawn pattern. I had a hard time finding buckram, so I used plastic canvas, which worked just fine. It makes a lovely bonnet!
