Josie Bonnet Pattern Description: This cute little 1880's Victorian bonnet is correct for the latter part of the Victorian era, say 1879-1888. The bonnet sits toward the back of the head. Smaller bonnets would have bene worn at any time through that period . They can be decorated simply or piled high as in the mid 1880's.

The inside of the brim was typically pleated or rusched. A comb is suggested for staying power placed at the back of the front brim so that it attaches to hair and keeps the bonnet stable. 

Fashion Plate Inspiration for Josie from Smith's Fashion Bazar 1879-80.

Note: Head shown is is 3/4 normal size
