Bill’s new bonnet

Bonnets were not normally worn by boys in the 21st century, but an exception were the so-called ‘pansies’, who wore more exaggeratedly ‘boysie’ fashions than the mainstream. Full petticoats, flounced skirts, large hair ribbons and yes, bonnets harking back to 19th century styles were not unusual amongst this minority of boys.
