I have been wanting a real bonnet for a while, the flattering face framing kind. The traditional Lancaster County bonnet with the scallops is lovely, but too ethnic-specific. And the Wenger style driving bonnet is like one I made myself, which is great in the summer but not snug enough for winter. I made my own winter bonnet, but it is starting to fade.
I don’t know how to get the great even gathers and the stiff back of the traditional bonnet, so I would like to buy one. But the source I was looking at doesn’t carry them anymore. And there is the issue of shipping to Canada. Some vendors just won’t do it.
So does anyone have a source for a more traditional, Quaker or Mennonite bonnet in black?
