Everything Old is New Again

Yesterday afternoon I finally got around to working on a new hat that is inspired by a wonderful old 1940s hat I bought last fall. Style-wise, it’s a beret/newsboy/tilt hat hybrid. The round (actually oval) top is classic beret. But the back sweeps straight up like a newsboy or driver, depending on where you’re from. It’s a mix of masculine and feminine…with the feminine taking the lead. I trimmed it with a flurry of vintage feathers and a carved vintage button that mimics the pattern of the fabric. It sits at an angle, so I added a narrow elastic band to keep it in place. A cool new look for the fall collection!
