The hat!

This is the fabulous Eliza Doolittle style hat to accompany the outfit, it is from one of Lynne Mc Masters historical hat patterns (the titanic oval crown) with a few tweaks of my own.

My assistant Lizzie made it up, didnt she do a great job?! It is asymetric with a much bigger brim on the right, that side is so huge it needs a weight on the other smaller side to keep it balanced, I'm going to create a couple of pockets with curtain weights in so it balances properly...

Its extra small in size cos I have a teeny head, it fits me perfectly but I forgot I might be wearing a wig... I foresee lots of hat pins
