Here are pictures of my big Edwardian hat. I really like how it turned out.

I’ve draped white chiffon over a cotton foundation and sewed it down by hand.

I’ve decorated the hat with two large white ostrich plumes, a white satin bow, and a pink and cream paper rose with green leaves.

The hat would be suitable for afternoon wear, a summer garden party, or another dressy occasion.

The hat is inspired by hats like this 1900s hat with tulle and ostrich feather, hat with plumes and roses, hat with plumes, this 1910 hat with plumes and flower, 1908-10 hat with draped net or chiffon and roses, this 1907 photograph of hat with roses, and this 1906 painting of a straw and tulle hat with roses.

Actually, this 1900s chiffon hat is just a slip-on cover for my 18th century hand-plaited straw hat.

That way I don’t have to store two hats. 😉
