New Hat in Shop

This was a hard hat to photograph on either type of stand. So, you get me!

This is the same hank of blush straw I used for the previous hat, but there is a lot more variation in the color. This has the pretty pale pinks intertwined with a more natural, earthy color as the straw holds through the dye. What I find to be really neat is that the lower the light, the more rosey pink the straw looks.

One of the things I love about this chapeaux cloche style is that it is historically accurate, but also makes a great hat for modern wear. Historically, this style is described as a country hat, one for relaxation and recreation. The dome shapes of the crown and brim create a very comfortable balance.
