Today’s Millinery – Red Fashionable Hat

This bright red fashionable Civil War era hat is made with a vintage double plait straw. 

The hat is an average to large size with a 20″ circumference crown that is a shallow 1.5″ high. The fashionable brim dips front and back, and is 12″ across. I blocked the crown firmer than the brim so the brim could retain the softness of the plait. This did allow a little rippling to the brim.
