silk doll bonnet -- repurposed

This bonnet will either become part of a dress or perhaps another doll bonnet.

It is antique silk the edge look unfinished but it's the technique that was used.  There's hand embroidery in a feather stitch and a blanket stitch on the edges.  It'll make a beautiful peace.  I'm not sure if I'll reline it as the muslin is in tatters or if I'll leave it as part of the charm of such an old piece.
