I've got something of an obsession for 1930s/1940s-style hats, as you can see...

I've created two completely different hats using this block: one has more of a Mad Hatter/steampunk quality, the other is what I would call a classic vintage style.

The most stunning element of this particular hat is its amazing vintage detail veiling. The workmanship is exquisite! The bottom of the veiling consists of an intricate pattern of flowers (possibly roses or maybe peonies?).
All hats pictured are available for purchase in my Etsy store: https://www.etsy.com/shop/JillianOriginals
