It’s all 1880s around here these days! This fun little “flower pot hat” is perfect for a breezy summer afternoon!
Made with the signature 1880s era squared off crown, an upturned brim adds playful charm. Trimmed in 100% plaid silk, this hat boasts elegance as well as whimsy. The color palette is an appealing array of earthy jewel tones with a little Colonial blue thrown in as contrast.
A trio of natural feathers adorns the center front for a little extra height. The crown measures 23″- allowing extra room for hairpieces and larger hairstyles. The hat body is lined in 100% cotton. This hat is meant to sit down onto the head just above the ears and is secured with a matching hat pin (included).
In between commissions, I made this lovely little straw 1880s era bonnet. The bonnet made for our recent 1880s era photoshoot was so much fun, I decided to create another- and this one is for sale on my website!
Made from 100% straw, this bonnet is inspired by several different hats illustrations of the period. It perches cheerfully at the back of the head. It’s not too large, yet not too small to be unnoticed. The brim touches the back of the ears and moves upward into a rounded point at the center front.
Trimmed in teal and mint checked satin, it features mint accent braid and small paper and bead flowers. The interior brim is lined with delicate embroidered net lace to give an extra hint of delicateness to this sweet little bonnet.
I chose NOT to add ties to this bonnet as it is more of a hybrid hat-bonnet mix and does instead come with a matching hatpin. The interior circumference measures 21″ and works best with a mid level hair style such as a bun or braided hairstyle.
