Gainsborough Hat...

I have been dreaming of my own Gainsborough Hat... Sigh... Maybe this will be the next project, after I finished the corset :-) Yes, I think I need to add this lovely article to my costume wardrobe. To be able to dress this way in real life... I was born in the wrong era :-) Enjoy!

I wish we in the USA wore hats, they're so stylish. I envy our sisters across the pond!

I have not seen the movie. But I have been studying the costumes for a while.

I made my own this summer to sport at the racetrack. My life is now complete! ;)

What a truly *gorgeous* hat. It is so regal! I can't wait to see it in combo with your finished outfit. This time period is so very romantic and dreamy. :)
