This beautiful light peachy-pink straw sun hat is another timeless hat. It is perfect for the Kentucky Derby. The shape and style would fit into any era and any occasion. Great for weddings or church .
It was hand blocked from a vintage woven straw braid cartwheel. After it was hand blocked, the brim was wired for shape and to give a slight ruffle to the brim edge.
I pleated a long strip of matching crin (horsehair braid) and fashioned it into the crown band. The same crin was then fashioned into roses and flowers for the front of the hat using the techniques found in my book "Creating with Crin" which is also available in my shop.
I added vintage silk leaves to complete the look for a light, airy, and feminine hat.
The hat was all hand sewn and hand blocked.
The inside is unlined but does have a grosgrain band. If you would like a comb or elastic added for extra stability please let me know upon purchase so I can add it to the hat before shipping.
Fits head sizes 22" to 22 1/2" comfortably.
