    I absolutely LOVE the dress and Bonnet!
    you did an A-MAZING job!:)
    How on earth did you learn to make hats?!
    Looks SO complicated! (but you can do anything, right?*wink*)

  2. Thank you Meleah! I did a bunch of internet research on millinery, and found some great old books online from the 1800’s all about hat making. It’s quite an adventure! I’m sure you could learn to do it as well:-)
    Thanks for commenting!
