Today’s Millinery

Here is the earliest straw form I’ve made, yet. This hat was inspired by 1760s-1780s paintings. (see below) I just love how the straw curves on this hat. With the back of the brim flipped up and the front dipping just so, it is incredibly well balance. I’ve been wearing it back and forth to the sewing room. Okay, I am wearing it while I type. I lined it with a great champagne 100% silk taffeta with a great crisp crunch. It is ready for you to add your ribbons appropriately. Look for it in my Etsy Shop.
