Wanted: directions for making a sun bonnet

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread

Does anyone have directions for making a sun bonnet? I remember a pattern from my grandmother, when I was a small child, that seemed to be just three pieces of cloth, two of which were sewn to create the bill and the cap, and a third was buttoned on as needed for a neck shield. I can no longer remember the sizes, or if I am remembering correctly.

Thanks for your help. Barbara Stancliff in East TX

Gosh Barbara, I've been wondering the same thing, I certainly need one for working in my garden this spring/summer. By the way, where are you in East Texas, we're outside of Winnsboro, 50 miles n.e. of Tyler.

Seems to me I may have seen a sunbonnet pattern in The Kansas City Star newpaper archives? What a great idea! We sometimes forget all those great ideas from our past. LQ
