Christening bonnets made for my twin nephews. A quasi sailor hat with gold piping and one I made from a renaissance painting of an infant. The last one has pleats in the back and is trimmed with bobbin lace of my own design.
The pattern for the sailor hat is from a book from the 1950’s.
The other one was a bit more tricky. I got a doll’s head and draped and pinned and basted and cut a few times till the form was satisfactory. The upper edge and the side edges make an almost heart shaped frame for the face.
Ivory colored raw thai silk with golden silk lining and bobbin lace in two gauges white linen thread.
