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!
