Tonight’s Millinery 

Tonight, I have finished a larger crown hat with a wide brim blocked on an antique block. The brim dips all around, and also curves down in the front. 

This wider brim is seen in recreational situations, as well as water cure and dress reform images. 

Let’s talk numbers. This crown is 21.75″ around the inside, 6.25″ side to side and 7.5″ front to back. Worn properly high on the head, this will fit a larger head. (It is way too big for my head that measures 21.5″ at the hairline and 22″at the forehead. The crown is 2″ deep. The brim is 13″ wide and 13.5″ front to back curved, 3.5″ deep. This took a lot of straw.
