Winter bonnets and hats 1800-1809

So, I have made  redingote from berry red wool with a white pinstripe, and with cuffs and collar from a beige-white velvet. It needs closures, btu sicne I have sprained my ankle I can't go downtown to the haberdasher's. While hoping for a recovery I am thus planning a bonnet or hat to wear with it. So I've been going through period fashion plates for inspiration.

And to help myself bring some order in this I thought that it would be good to make a blog post with winter bonnets and hats.

Velvet is the thing for winter. Three woollen cloth redingotes with velvet bonnets/hats.
