Vintage Hat Redo

Here is a hat that has been hanging in my front hall on the hat rack for years (see previous post). It fell off and I saw how dusty it was so I decided to fix it up a bit.
This is the “before”. Not only dusty but had some old black netting in a bunch on one side and the chin elastic strap hanging from one end.
What can we do here? Let’s see. We can clean it up a bit and take off the ratty looking netting and elastic cord.
And we can add a rose.  This makes all the difference.
Now all the luscious pictures…
When my eight year old granddaughter caught sight of this hat, it went directly onto her head!! And then she modeled it for all of us… That girl knows style already.

It now sits happily in my dining room. A simple makeover with big results.
Best wishes, Linda
