Old fashioned bonnet

This hat project was something I'd wanted to do for a really long time. My great-grandmother gave me the hat (green with paisley on the left) when I was really young and I decided to try and duplicate it with a more updated fabric. It was made of 2 pieces...the main portion and then the brim which buttons to it. You could even turn the main portion over and have it be 'reversible' (the brim would stay the orignal color you choose since it has the buttons sewn on). Here is the original and the one I made. I liked how it turned out so much, I may try to make more later on and see if I can get more pictures of the step-by-step process. :)
