At the moment I’m trying to make myself a mid-1850s bonnet with paper from scratch.
I’m using paper, cutting here and there a bit, glueing it together, and cutting again till I like the shape. 😀
I had to add a folded strip of paper along the inside brim or the bonnet wouldn’t hold the shape.
I already like the bonnet shape: So maybe just some minor adjustments and it’s finished.
