This early 1900's woman sunbonnet has been one of my extra long time favorites. Made in a blue and white small check homespun, the bonnet features a narrow ruffle around the stitched flat brim. Another narrow ruffle gathers the back, along with the ties, which adjusts the fit at the back of neck line.
A wider ruffle follows the edge of the apron of the bonnet. Inside chin ties to tighten the fit. The fabric is soft and worn with a mellow feel, giving it a wonderful patina. Some fading, some small holes, which makes it all that more endearing.
It is 16" in length, from the ruffle at the hem, to the center at the top. (32" from one side to the other). 18" along the neck line, from side to side. 20" along the face area, from one side to the other.
