I love a bonnet on a little girl. Aside from the fact that it invokes my favorite Little House on the Prairie memories, it provides darned good sun protection too.
I have seen tutorials for these on the internet, but I needed actual pattern pieces to accomplish V's bonnet. I found one in a Simplicity costume pattern.
I lined the inside with a silk remnant that I had floating around.
The only thing missing from this pattern is the flap that protects the back of the neck. Laura Ingalls always had one. She had a smart momma.
