Straw Bowler Hat – Spring / Summer 2013

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????
