These are all soooo beautiful.  I work at a vintage shop and there's one bonnet in the "rentals" area in the back that I have yet to try on Y_Y    I need to make more bonnets because they're just so gosh darned purdy.

I make Elegant Gothic Lolita goods on commission, and sometimes I just make things for the online store!

These are amazing! I thought buckram was the stuff in hoop skirts? I used some as boning in a corset I made. It was a little over half an inch wide, with wire on the sides and a space in the middle without so you can sew up the center. At least I was told it was buckram!

I've never heard of that type of corset boning before, but it sounds interesting! The only kinds of corset bones I've previously heard about are plain steel bones and spiral steel bones.  How did the buckram bones work out?  I'm fairly certain that hoopskirts also have steel in them.

Where did you get the boning for your corset?

The buckram was a stiff fabric which looked like cheesecloth dipped in white glue - it was as stiff as cardboard.

Well bugger, I will have to double check. My girl friend said they called it buckram, but we can check it out, I know it was intended for hoop skirts. It worked so good in the corset, I don't think I will ever use anything else! All I have to do was cut to length and sew up the middle. To easy. Well, cutting it did take the help of some serious scissors that my dad had, and some man hand strength. I'm a wussy.

Lets all go to Jack Taylor's to celebrate!
