Newest Hat! 1880s Inspired

IMG_6309This hat is sorta inspired by an 1880s piece in the MET collection. I’ve been wanting to do a hat with concave crown sides for quite a while. When I saw the single side turn up of the inspiration hat, I knew the two had to go together. My version has a flat crown tip and a flatter brim with the left hand side curving up.

In my mind, I see it finished with either this berry satin ribbon I have along with feathers or that really cool scrunchy ribbon Carole offers gathered along the underside of the brim where the original has velvet and around the base of the crown. I could also see a curving tower of something steampunk inspired working up the front of the crown.

Find this hat in my Etsy store.
