Winter's Charm

Oh the delight of little girls clothing from the late Victorian era!  Years ago I made a wonderful purchase of antiques including some childrens clothing from a local estate here is western New York.  Our winters were snowy and cold in the late 1800s.  Wearing quilted or stuffed clothing and accessories was a must.

This little girls bonnet is a treasure and was just listed at my Etsy shop.  I absolutely love the rich, thick chocolate brown velvet!  The little ribbons at the top just add the right touch of little Miss feminine charm.  From what I can tell, it is completely hand sewn.  Probably a pound of momma's love in each and every stitch!
