Gorgeous statement hat with extra-large flowers!
Oh my, this is a lovely hat, if I do say so myself! Blocked from a fine natural-colored pinopok straw into a perching saucer shape, this hat is beautifully embellished with enormous handmade amethyst silk flowers. There are two of them, one at front and one at back, so that you look fabulous both coming and going. The centers of these flowers are made from iridescent sequin film and vintage wax-tipped stamens, and there are a few little matching sequin film flowers nestled alongside the big one at front. I also tucked in some open-textured purple vintage veiling and hand-stitched on a scattering of freshwater pearls in shades of gray and purple.
This stunning confection of a hat is attached to a matching straw disk, wired to a tulle-wrapped frame that you can mold to your head shape, and has a metal comb attached so that you can wear it securely.
Sometimes more is more, y'all!

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.
