Today’s Millinery – Black High Crown Hat

 Today’s hat is a fashionable Civil War era hat in black straw with a high crown and narrow brim. The brim is stylishly curved, dipping front and back. The oval  crown tapers just a bit.

This hat will fit an average to large head with a crown circumference of 21.75″. The crown is 3 1/2″ tall, while the brim is 2″ wide, making the hat 11″ in diameter. 

I would love to see this hat finished of in this simple period manner with a favorite plaid ribbon. Find this hat in my Etsy Shop.

  1. I think it’s noteworthy that this woman wears this hat over a Net that has an asymmetrical tie with large tassels. So many do not realize that women wore hats & bonnets OVER other types millinery, especially different types of Nets.
