Sometimes, the straw gets what it wants

The straw told me what it wanted for this hat, from the dome crown to shaped brim to striped silk decoration. This hat makes me smile. The same striped silk taffeta wraps the edge on the brim, lines the brim, and encircles the crown with an pentagonal knot in front.
This hat is suitable for the fashionable waredrobe ca 1860-65.

This hat measures 20″ around the inside of the crown with the ribbon lining. The brim is a little narrower than my norm.
