 I now offer Basic Bonnets.  These are various bonnets shapes, covered and lined, as usual, with dress ties and utility ties, as appropriate. A band of stiff cotton netting is included on the inside crown to assist in keeping the bonnet in place.

You may order Basic Bonnets in your choice of colors for exterior and for the brim lining, with curtains longer or shorter, fuller or more narrow than shown at no extra charge.   A black interior head liner may be substituted for the usual white.  You may decorate these bonnets yourself or purchase various decoration "a la carte."  More shapes will be added as they become available.  Any Basic Bonnet shape may be made up for mourning.  Click on thumbnails for more images.
