The Lucy Amelia is a sunbonnet that spans the 1840's through the 1860's. The pattern is based on two original sunbonnets in our collection as well as other studied in museums and period magazines.
The pattern contains variations for brim shape, curtain depth, cording, and quilting. The detailed instructions and illustrations help the sewer complete a period appropriate sunbonnet. The pattern does not include instructions for the zigzag version or caned/wired version.
