This is a walking hat in shades of purple. It is a reproduction of a Victorian 1880s walking hat. This is great for re-enactors, SASS, Costumers, or Victorian teas.
The base of the hat was made by sewing vintage purple scalloped straw braid into the correct shape then adding a bandeau to support the back. it was made to stand up in the back and tilt towards the front.
The back and crown are covered with vintage flowers, feathers, and a lovely vintage lavender velvet ribbon which not only works as an accent for the flowers but as ties for the hat itself.
The overall look is quite charming especially when worn at a forward tilt.
Fits most head sizes. The hat is held onto the head with the lavender velvet ribbon and there is a comb at the inside back to secure for forward tipping.
The hat is lined in satin.
