I would like to share with you this hat my mom made. She made a Victorian hat a couple of years ago for my Nana. Every year she goes to a Victorian tea at her church and they all get dressed up. My mom bought this hat as a vintage piece at an estate sale originally - but it was disgusting when she brought it home. I don't have a before pic but trust me it was BAD. Originally only going to replace the lace, but when she started to pick it apart she found all kinds of bugs so she completely re-did it. She pretty much rocks. She replaced the fabric added new lace, flowers, feathers, and beads.
Not a great picture but here is Nan and I after her lunch
