FINALLY getting around to posting pictures of my latest vintage hat! I adore it, even though the poor thing was a little worse for wear (aren't we all at that age?). Surprisingly, the feathers were actually all intact, but the bird needed reattaching, and the veil was completely shot. I had to remove it, with the exception of a tiny portion by the top middle of the bird, where the felt had actually been slit and the veil threaded through. This I left, fearing to tear the felt if I removed any of the veil around it. Plus, I'm not big on wearing veils (with the exception of a few choice hats). It always leads to extra special questions such as, "Can you actually see through that?!"
The hat is constructed of brown felt, with a tall, forward-tilting, flat-topped crown, and a band of felt to hold it onto the back of the head.
The hat also came with an insanely large hat pin in it!
I feel that I should name it after some cartoon character or something? Any ideas?
