Ribbons and Bows

DSC_0043

I am currently exploring the world of children’s millinery and enjoying the search for children’s vintage hats and bonnets.  Baby bonnets, of course, abound and those from the Victorian era are particularly dear. This little treasure is an embroidered net with cream-coloured, silk ribbon ties  and brow-line self-fabric flowers; likely a Christening bonnet. The machine-embroidered net is embellished with tiny bows.
