These are some of my bonnets that were hand made for a pioneer themed fall party that I recently attended.
House bonnets worn by women and girls were generally brimless head coverings which were secured by tying under the chin. They were worn indoors, to keep the hair tidy, and outdoors, to keep dust out of the hair.
Not only were these attractive bonnets worn to town they were also worn outdoors when working in the garden or doing chores. They were very practical and when they were not needed they would hang loosely down the back.
