    Google "Ladies Day Out". I altered one of them for my avatar.

    parasol ladies is what they are called.

    If the ones shown so far aren't enough I've had a book since 2004 called "Bonnet Girls" by Helen R Scott. The ladies in it also have additional pieces like kids, pets, etc that create scenes.

    Recently, my cousin gave me a magazine with full patterns for Sunbonnet Ladies. I can't remember which magazine but it is from the 90's. If you PM me your address, I will mail it to you.

    Fancy Suzie looks like the one a friend sent me from England. She is the only one I've ever seen that shows her hair.
    Perhaps you mean umbrella ladies? sort of fancy.

    Here's a free umbrella ladies pattern. It's kind of on my bucket list, but...anyway, have the link

    http://sunbonnetsue.com/September2000.htm

    I have seen it called umbrella ladies, parasol girl, and Southern belle.
    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it difficult to plan the day.

    I don’t have the pattern, but my mom made a quilt like this using fabrics she used to sew dresses for us, she made most of our dresses. There were also blocks for the boys, a cowboy on a horse with a lasso. The shirts were again fabric from shirts she made for my brothers. Precious precious memories.

    Where can I get the pattern? Plus do you know where to get the "puffy" looking Sunbonnet Sues or scenes?
    New to all of this! Thanks for any help you can give.
