I was wondering if you can you put a feather plume on a straw bonnet? Does anybody have a picture of a straw bonnet decorated with a plume? If you do, could you post it so I could see how it is attached? Thanks so much:p

There are quite a few Victorian bonnets here, some with feathers, some without. Not all are our era, but you get the idea I think

These are ones that are done by Anna Allen (The Graceful Lady)

Go to www.mfa.org Then go to Collections and search for "straw bonnets". You will find many straw bonnets. Pay attention to the dates though. This is one of my favorite digital collections.
