Today’s Millinery: First Decorated Hat of 2019

I trimmed this fashionable Civil War era hat with a soft black velvet ribbon and vintage green satin ribbon. I can see why the original cast was fond of this green and black combination against straw. The crown of this hat rises just a bit hightper in the back, accenting the curve of the brim dipping in front.

This crown is 21″ around and 1.5″ high. The brim is 11.” across.

Find this hat in my Etsy shop.

Curious numbers: 4-5 yards of ribbon. 4 hours to decorate.

  1. Anna this hat is gorgeous. Someone is going to be one lucky lady. Wish it was me, but can’t afford a new hat right now.

  2. So beautiful! Simple yet breath taking.
