White and Cream Tulle and Rose Lolita Bonnet - WIP

Hi all:-) As I was waiting for fabric to arrive for a bonnet commission, I started randomly playing around with the prepared base, throwing this and that together - and this bonnet we're working on with mum is the result. I snapped only few progress pics because it was somehow always dark when I remembered to take them, but I hope they'll give you at least some idea of the process.
I had this design on mind actually for some time, though initially I thought it would be all about lace - but I like the emphasis on the flowers, leaves and the tulle a lot. One of these days I'll make something airy and simple where the accent is entirely on the frail tulle... but this called for a touch of opulence.
I was torn for a long time whether to keep it or sell it, to be honest, but in the end I think I'll sell it. I'm thinking I'll call it the Rose Garden Bonnet... what do you think?
My inspiration for this actually were various pictures of Victorian wedding bonnets - I kinda wonder what it would look like with a breath-light veil...oh be still my bleeding heart. Stop tempting me.

 

Progress pics:

I still need to sew the flowers and the leaves on, so it's still all pins, threads and needles, plus I have the commission to finish, so I don't know when I get to it. But I like it so far, how about you?

PS: Thanks for all your sweet comments on the jacket. It means so much to us! *hugs*

      She truly is a horrid person, but you'll see what happens soon. :)
      By the way, I sent you a message and some pics on Skype. Did you get it? My Skype has gone all weird and says I've got messages from you when I haven't, for some reason.
      Oh, and expect a letter in the mail soon! I'll be sending it out tomorrow.
