Default Pioneer Clothing Patterns

Google "Pioneer Bonnet" and click the first link to see a great Pioneer bonnet pattern.
Then click "Return to Life Along The Trail", scroll down and you will see a pattern for a Frontier Workshirt.

Tell me what you think of these patterns.

These garments would be different in New Zealand, especially the bonnet! But why not....Different is good! Will you sew your own?

Yeah, people might jump to conclusions (as they often do) and think your Exclusive Brethren or something like that.

I'd give it a go anyway.
People will think what they want no matter what we do or say .
It's good to be different

Cheers
