1787 Silly Hat, 1787ish round gown, 18th century, projects

Too Subtle?

I didn’t know I was going to make some silly headwear to wear with my 1785ish round gown, until I ran into this silk gauze with tiny gold stripes at Stone Mountain & Daughter!  Oops!  I basically cut a giant circle and gathered it in two places, attached a bunch of vintage green rayon moire ribbon, and some feathers and a vintage rhinestone pin that belonged to my grandmother.  I may need to put some flowers on there somewhere, too!

My husband says that this is the soundtrack for this hat.
