I've blocked this hat on a vintage oval pillbox block using a lovely black parisisal straw. It has been stiffened slightly and a petersham headline band hand-sewn inside. The inside is lined with orange and cream floral vintage silk. this too, is hand sewn.

The trim on the hat is a fan made from the same straw (8 1/2 inches ( 22cm) wide and 4 1/2 inches high (11.5cm) sewn to the right-hand side. It's finished with a giant vintage button in retro orange. The button is 3" (7.5cm) in diameter.

The hat will fit a standard 322 inch (57cm) headsize and is designed to tilt to one side. It has an elastic in a soft brown attached, to keep it securely on your head.

A simple, yet dramatic hat - and a little bit quirky!
