I made this bonnet with Miller's Millinery Cottage Bonnet pattern.  It is unfinished, but well on its way.

Heidi-
Sorry but the "bodice" on your mannequin distracted me from the bonnet.
Is it what I think it is or just a random something?
Thank you,

It's my wrapper.  Based off the Madeline wrapper from Peterson's magazine, 1862 (or was it 61?  My slippers were from one year and my wrapper the other...)
