I found this old prom dress at a local thrift shop for $1.
While most people see a dress I see satin and chantilly lace!
Calvin was kind enough to model the dress for effect:).
Another thrift shop find was this straw hat for $2.50.
It may look like a straw hat to most but I see something more!
Calvin helped once again by modeling the hat:).
So what do you do with an old prom dress and a straw hat?
Make a bonnet, of course!
After cutting up the dress and straw hat I covered the new bonnet base with the lace and satin.
Then I added feathers, silk ribbon, flowers made from dress scraps, and a black sheer bow on the back.
A new bonnet for less than $10!
