After last Friday’s pretty vintage hat photo, I decided to make a modern version of the hat that was pictured. This one is a similar shape, but it’s blocked from a single piece of straw so the crown is smooth rather than sectioned. And as much as I love vintage lace, it must be used wisely so that it doesn’t create a look that’s dated. Instead of covering the brim with lace, I opted to use a bit of dotted net to add whimsy and texture. The bow and band are made from a vintage tone-on-tone damask fabric and I couldn’t help adding a few fun feathers. Retro with a modern twist! This hat is available in my Etsy shop.
