This pattern is one I came up with after watching the t.v. series Little House on the Prairie. I grew up watching the series and was delighted to discover it on our public television station this past year and was enchanted anew with the costumes of Ma, Laura, Mary and their friends and family. This bonnet is particularly modeled after the one the adult Laura wears in the later episodes. Mrs. Oleson also wears a very similar styled bonnet when in her less-flamboyant attire. :) This bonnet is sized adult. The fit is large and roomy, with plenty of space for coiled hair or braids. The brim shades the face from the sun and is edged with a delicate ruffle. The back neck is elasticized and has an ample curtain to shade your neck from the sun.
