. How the Bonnets are Made

They are all handmade locally, with a firm brim, neckties and have an adjustable tie inside the bonnet at the neck base.  Bonnets are machine washable and sturdy but we recommend a gentle cycle, cold water. After washing, lightly press with a warm iron if needed. Bonnets have a 5 1/2 inch deep brim, and a neck ruffle of 5 inches. The gathered cap is deeper and roomier by approximately 2 inches. o lengthen the back neck covering, loosen the ties inside the casing. To shorten, tighten the ties. The quality of the sewing is wonderful as the women who make these are meticulous and detailed. The size is a  medium/large which fits most women. If, however, you find that this  is still too small, please contact us for a custom made bonnet or return with your receipt for an exchange. However, on your exchange, there are no guarantees on color or pattern.
