Big Red ?? it's looking rather cherry colour there but is in fact a rich burgundy red - the felt has a lovely velvety finish.
Style & trimming inspired by 1940s Hollywood Glamour - Rita Hayworth, Heda Lamarr, Ava Gardner.
A fabric hat in Gray with black pleated insert.
Inspired by 1930s Hollywood Glamour - Marlene Dietrich wore pancake hats like this. The rakish angle is de rigueur and I've shaped the crown so it fits snuggly when worn at an extreme angle.
And - as we've been going backwards through the decades - my Cream & Cafe Latte cloche - very 1920s Flapper Girl, very Miss Fisher, Great Gatsby, The Artist ...
It was inspired by the hat in the bottom row - 2nd from the left.
From a 1928 Sears, Roebuck & Company catalogue, reproduced by Dover Books.
