Lace bonnet for Triste

I finished lace bonnet for Triste yesterday. Made from all antique materials except silk ribbons at the top. I used about 6 yards of silk ribbons to make pom-pom. It’s almost impossible to find such long yardage of antique silk today so I have to substitute with modern material. But I dyed ecru ribbon with coffee and that seems to help to make ribbon look vintage. I prefer to use coffee instead of tea to dye silk. Tea seems to give more reddish tone than coffee. But this is just my preference.
