This hand-sculpted lipstick-red felt hat is formed into a jaunty shaped brim at the front and lovely folds at the back pinned together with a substantial black Bakelite hat pin. Fierce. Nestled into the shaped folds is a length of soft, vintage, French silk veiling that lets people know you're still approachable and can be nice. If they have the right attitude, that is.
Finished with a red millinery grosgrain ribbon inside, this hat can be worn on either side of your head. I might prefer it perched to the left because more of the back folds are visible from your front that way, but you decide.
This hat is secured to the head with a millinery elastic and a small comb. Please specify an elastic color which most closely approximates your hair color in the "notes to seller" box during checkout. Dark brown, light brown, pale tea-dyed blonde, black, gray and white 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.
