Maroon Pelisse and Matching Bonnet

I finally finished my pelisse I started last fall. It’s made out of maroon melton wool, and I trimmed it with rayon/cotton braid. I had finished most of it a couple weeks ago, but I just put on the hooks and eyes.

Here’s the bonnet I made to go with it. It was a settler-type bonnet originally, but I cut down the brim a bit, put on new ties, and made the cockade/feather decoration. The latter was definitely inspired by the lovely work at House of Nines Design.
