Straw Trilby

 I have formed the crown of this little trilby by hand making a very deep dip in the top of the crown, the brim I blocked in the normal manor on a hat block so as it does not fit around the head like a normal trilby it is kept in place by a hat elastic.
The lovely black feather was steamed and curled into shape then secured with a small pearly black button.
I have used black raw silk as the trim around the brim and band around the crown which is striking against the light straw
It's maybe not a hat for the 'shy' but sure will turn heads.!
