View A is a fabric covered bonnet inspired by an 1830 plate in the Towsend's Monthly magazine. The silk fabric that covers the outside of the brim is sheared in rows, the outside brim is covered with knife pleated silk. The bavolet (curtain) has a small ruffle, The crown has diagonal ribbons that come from the back bow to the little rabbit bow at the top front of the crown. There are two stems of silk ribbon flowers in the center front of the crown and a cluster of the same silk flowers and two cherries inside the brim. The pattern includes instructions on how to alter the crown sides pattern to increase the height of the crown. Which could easily be increased another 2" and still be in "la Mode" for the 1830's
