Description

I trimmed this fashionable Civil War era hat with a soft black velvet ribbon and vintage green satin ribbon. I can see why the original cast was fond of this green and black combination against straw. The crown of this hat rises just a bit hightper in the back, accenting the curve of the brim dipping in front.

This crown is 21" around and 1.5" high. The brim is 11." across.

About my straw & drawn bonnets:
I use an assortment of real straw plaits including a whole straw plait, a fine Italian straw plait, and an English black straw plait. I block my hats and bonnets on original millinery blocks and hand carved blocks.

My bonnets are sewn by hand from the tip forward, with 100% cotton thread. Because they are few hand-sewn, there can be some asymmetry in each bonnet. Each bonnet is wired with 22 or 19 gauge millinery wire. The bonnet is then blocked and sized (or stiffened) with my own sizing.

I ship Priority Mail with insurance. Larger bonnets need to ship by parcel post as the boxes they safely fit in require a 'dimension charge' at the post office.

I try to keep my millinery affordable. Price changes reflect the cost of straw and other materials as they change, as well as fees.

Please know I have a feline millinery assistant in case you have allergies.
