Changing projects

I'm putting the ballgown aside for a bit. I'm not finding the lace I want to edge the bertha and I need to work on dresses for Lost Tribes.

My next project is my wool. The fabric is a navy tropical wool a friend found at an amazing price. The trim is some I bought at a City Wide Garage Sale several years ago; it's kind of a brownish green.

I'm using Simplicity 4400 with the gathered sleeve and will cut the waist straight rather than V'd. I think I might also make the collar smaller, similar to this.

The trim will run down the sleeve like in the pattern picture and across the chest similar to these two women's dresses.
But what bonnet to wear with it?
