Olive green Regency bonnet
Here is the latest Regency bonnet.  It has a wired buckram frame - I normally forego the wire because of the extra time it takes to apply it properly, but in this case it created a much sturdier frame to work with - covered with olive green taffeta.  I pleated the fabric around the crown and used the trim to disguise the securing stitches.  It's trimmed with wide black grosgrain ribbon (called "hat band" ribbon), black and gold satin cord, white lace, gold stamped filigree bead caps, rooster feathers, and a couple of silk flowers.
