I never know where to post hats... So here seems fitting.  I work in a 1875 era Living History museum in a millinery.  This is for the broomshop (factory) gal, so it has to be plain/ dark colors.  I opted for the elastic strap vs. relying on a hat pin.

I love it and the young Miss wearing it is lovely.  Did you make her too?  I am in need of something nice for my hats to rest on (when not on my own head of course), so if you made her and could give me some pointers on how to make one of my own, I would be so pleased.

Thanks Smiley  It is plain but it had to be since she would have been fairly poor.  I am going to do one for the doctors wife next! I can get a little more elaborate Smiley

I am embarrassed to have to admit, but our head isn't period appropriate.  It is a Styrofoam head covered in muslin.   Embarrassed
