Fortune favors the bold hat-wearer!
Channel your inner 1940's film diva in this divine purple velour felt sculpture of a hat! Its base is a sort of beret shape with a sculpted swath of the same velour felt embellishing one side in waves and curves and helping the hat to hug your head and frame your face. There is a pointed bit resembling a feather cresting upward plus an actual feather--curled mauve ostrich--nestled into the midst of it all. I started out designing it to be worn on one side of the head but in truth, it looks equally good worn on either side--two hats in one!
The hat is finished inside with wide lavender petersham ribbon 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.
