What a difference!
I finished sewing two bonnets this week...
Way back, women wore bonnets with a wide brim to protect their eyes and faces from sun and dust. There were bonnets hanging from a nail near the door, at my Aunt Vastie's house.
I love the simple cotton dresses women wore back then. Dresses that were ankle length, with a petticoat worn underneath, and a bonnet for protection from the sun.
Two bonnets and an apron sold last week. Churches around the area have "old fashioned day" in the spring, so I get a few orders for that.
Thank you for visiting!
