Chapeau Cloche in Black 

This is a larger size hat for the Civil War Era. 

This hat has a 21.75″ crown and a brim the measures 12.5″ front to back, 12″ side to side. The brim dips down, dome like, shading the eyes just a bit. I’ve included some photos of me wearing it because is wears far better than it photographs. 

Measuring: Measure at your hairline around parallel to the ground. Most of my CW era fashion hats need to be an inch to an inch and a half less that what you measure. The Mousquetaire and this brimless are exceptions. You will want these to fit lower, closer to the number you measure
