This lovely straw sun hat would be absolutely perfect to wear to the Kentucky Derby, a wedding, a garden party, Easter brunch, or really, any warm weather event where you want to look feminine and fabulous!
This hat is made from classic black and white polka-dotted sinamay straw with a white petersham ribbon hat band. Three vintage gardenias that look just like the real thing frame your face, and a bit of very special vintage black silk veiling with tiny white chenille dots adds a bit of subtle glamour.
This hat is finished inside with black petersham ribbon, and I've stitched in a bit of extra ribbon into the front to protect your forehead from coming into contact with the straw. This hat is designed to be worn perched to one side and is secured to the head with millinery elastic. Please specify an elastic color approximating your hair color in the "notes to seller" box during checkout. Black, dark brown, light brown, gray, white, and pale tea-dyed blonde are available.

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.
