Tonight’s Millinery: Chapeaux de Paille with Velvet

This petite Regency era hat has a bold look and a hint of hidden color. The straight sided crown is encircled with black velvet points. The shaped brim is edged in black velvet and lined in a blue green silk taffeta. 

The crown measures 19.5″ around, making it nice for an average to smaller head. The crown is 5″ tall. The brim is 10.5″ across. The crown has a band of quilt cotton sateen and ribbon ties. 

This assortment of 1815/6 and 1803 illustrations inspired this hat. 

Find this hat in my Etsy shop.
