Description

Summer in the Ocean State is a very busy time of year, with SO much to see and do!! Whether you're into surfing, deep sea fishing, tennis, polo matches, yachting and the America's Cup yacht races, horseback riding, classical music concerts, folk and jazz festivals, antiquing, sight seeing, or just laying on the beach soaking up some sun, our little state of Rhode Island has it all!! Newport has some of the most breathtaking Gilded Age mansions anywhere, as Newport was the playground for the rich and famous, like the Vanderbilts, the Astors, the Carnegies, Doris Duke, and has been the setting for many movies, including Steven Spielberg's Amistad, and the Great Gatsby, starring Robert Redford and Mia Farrow (1980's version).
This hat is typically Newport in everyway!! I have hand dyed the light blue to royal ombre effect, and stiffened it to perfection with a non-toxic milliners gelatin, and then gave it a coating of acrylic to keep the color fast, and to make it a bit water resistant. I would not, however, recommend wearing it in the rain. The base material is called toyo, which is a tightly twisted Japanese paper, and hand woven. I have blocked it over a vintage flat topped, wooden crown block, and an improvised brim block. Fresh pin stripes create the hatband, piped bias edging, and lavish bow, with a layer of organza ribbons in between. The ostrich fronds and ribbon tails will play beautifully in the ocean breezes!! The brim is wired for a crisp edge. A discreet millinery elastic, worn under the back of the head, holds this hat on securely, in case of a sudden sea breeze!! Fits heads to measure 22-22 1/2 inches.
NOTE: At the moment, this hat is a custom made to order piece. Please convo me with your head size. When measuring your head, be sure to add one finger under the tape measure for comfort. It should be a relaxed measurement--not too tight!!

I adore my hat. It's perfect! The design Is extraordinary. And the color combination and fabric patterns complement each other to perfection. The hat is expertly crafted and the attention to detail is obvious. Elsie is a true artist and hat magician! Plus, she's such a nice lady, and it's obvious she strives to make sure her customers are happy. I most certainly am just that! And l'm planning on being a repeat customer!
