An 18th c Bonnet in Black Silk

Yesterday I created, from start to finish, a black silk bonnet for next week's big 18th c event. I've been craving a bonnet like this for a long time, and I am so tickled with it!

I modified a Timely Tresses pattern since the shapes were so similar. The trim was whip-gathered down the centre, which has the added benefit of hiding any unsightly gathering stitches.

I only wish I had better pictures for you all, but I suppose that will have to wait until the event!

First Post Introduction

Hello all!

I have been writing for a few years at LiveJournal but it seems that many people are now adding a Blogger on the side. Not wanting to be left behind, or miss out on all my friends' creations, I've hopped on the bandwagon. You can still access my LiveJournal here, and I will continue to update it as well. I picture using this blog to post event recaps and finished project images; a portfolio if you will. There are also so many blogs on Blogger that I love reading, and now I can follow and comment on them properly!

A new post, with pictures, is coming soon!
