A gorgeous and versatile black straw hat for warmer weather!
Blocked on an antique (but new to me!) crown and brim block set, this lovely black parasisal straw hat will look as great worn with a strappy sundress as with a pair of summery linen trousers. There's plenty of brim to shade your face but not so much as to be impractical or feel too formal. I've embellished the jaunty sloped crown with a 4-strand braid band of periwinkle blue and black straw and loops of the same braided band, accented by a looped flower with an antique bead flower center. Absolutely lovely and so easy to wear. Pop this one on and get ready for all the compliments coming your way!
This hat was blocked on a 22-1/2 inch crown block, and will best fit a head circumference in the 22- to 22-1/2 inch range. Please don't hesitate to message me with any questions about sizing!

I'm so glad you asked! Avoid wearing a straw hat in wet weather because it will quickly lose its shape in the rain. You may also find that some dyed straws' colors will run when wet.
Avoid getting fabric trims like silk flowers, ribbon ornaments and veils wet as these can still look droopy even after they dry again.
If a felt hat becomes wet, stuff it loosely with tissue before allowing it to dry. If your felt looks dull or dusty, you can use a bristle brush to brush up the nap again.
To store, stuff your hat loosely with tissue paper to hold its shape, and put it in its hat box away from dust and sunlight. Never hang a hat or keep it on a stand or its shape could become distorted over time.
