Regency Bonnet

Design Concept & Execution

I designed costumes for a production of Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley and I wanted to fabricate a Regency bonnet for the character Anne de Bourgh. Using a pattern to base my design on, I created my hat using buckram, felt, and millinery wire to compose and maintain the shape. To complete the overall look, I added knife pleated trim to enhance the harsh persona of the character. When finished, the hat conveyed the appearance and silhouette of a sophisticated woman from 1815 that I wanted to achieve.
