I wanted to make a hat that was a classic shape but with a feminie wearability to it.
The bowler hat is typically a style you would associate with men…..we all know the classic scene in Mary Poppins when Mr Banks’ bowler hat is punched when he’s sacked! Shocking! So to ensure I achieved a more feminine feel I used a pretty patterned straw; and added the lovely blue & red ribbon & bow.
I wish this hat was big enough to fit me! Hmmmm…..where’s my hat stretcher????
