" The Winifred Hat" This red hat was made primarily for Remembrance Day in the UK but will work for any situation where a red hat with flowers is needed. Red felt has been stiffened into a formal and respectful shape for any hat. The brim of the hat is edged in red knit fabric and the hat band is red Dupioni silk. Three red silk poppies compliment this hat. The red veil netting falls from the middle of the crown to just below the brim. The netting can be pulled down to go about 2 cm (3/4 inch) or it can be puffed up a little to puff up the brim.
The lining is white Dupioni silk with a red grosgrain hat band. The red is pure red. No pink or orange or any other color is in the felt. It is red like a red crayon or primary color red. The same with the poppies, the silk band and the veil netting.

If you need a beautiful and chic hat for Remembrance Day, this it. Simple and classic this hat will go with a red or black coat. It is fashionable while honoring the military and large enough to your pride and sense of gratitude to the men and women who have served.

Though I do not live in the UK, I come from a VERY patriotic family and have had ancestors and family members who have defended my country in times of war and peace. From Medley Shelton (5X great grandfather) who as a boy of 14 shot at the 'Redcoats" from the tree tops in Virginia to my nephew in law James Gentemann who led patrols in Iraq, my family has had proud members of the military. Unfortunately I was too near sighted to serve my country. I am a RN and thought I would be needed. (how near sighted you are has to do with whether you can wear a gas mask or not. Kind of necessary in the military) I honor those who do defend their country in war time and peace time,. This is my way of helping someone honor their country.

I will post more and better pictures later, I just wanted to get this hat in my shop.

Shipped right on time. It is so beautiful. I cannot wait for my Wedding Day. I cannot even feel it on my head. Comfortable, and captivating, all in one small headdress.

Almost tearing everything inside, and the bow one half is glued and the other one not! The accidents happen to her, but the saleswoman is very very nice it is she who offered to reimburse me without me asking her, thank you Helen. I will surely buy other things from your shop because you do very nice things.
