A versatile, modern and very wearable straw fedora blocked on vintage hat blocks!
I recently bought my first vintage fedora blocks and am kicking myself for not having delved into the fedora world sooner. This hat came out beautifully, if I do say so myself! Blocked in a muted gold parasisal straw, I've finished this one with a multicolor striped cotton that was a souvenir gift from a friend who had done some traveling in Africa. There's a lot of cobalt blue along with some stripes of white, black, orchid-purple, green, red, pink, and yellow. In short, this hat will go with just about everything! For a bit of additional panache, I've also added a blue-dyed peacock feather. This is a great hat to take you from summer through the warm beginnings of autumn.
Finished inside with matching royal blue Mokuba petersham ribbon, the crown of this hat was blocked on a size 6-3/4 block which corresponds to a 21-1/4-21-5/8 inch (54-55 cm) head circumference and will best fit that size head. Ping me if you want some instruction on how to properly measure your head!

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.
