Breathtaking! Received my hat before Christmas as promised. When I opened the box the hat took my breath away. It was beautiful, well crafted, and a joy to wear. I have received so many compliments on it. Excellent value for money. Now to update my wardrobe to compliment the hat!Thank you, Victorian Trading!

Ahhhh - ladies, WHAT a hat this is!! It is 100 as glorious in person as in the photo. Very well made, heavy, solid, beautifully lined, and, obviously, lots of misty gauze/netting for that woman-of-mystery effect. Utterly gorgeous!! I wore it for two Halloween parties going for a steampunk effect and it was Great; can't wait for the next time I am in a show I do theatre where I am playing a Victorian lady; will be perfect. On a wig, with a hatpin - also courtesy of VTC - it is rock solid. I even went bowling in it, of all things, and it never moved.

Well made hat, but sized for a smaller and more narrow head than my own. Wool is more forgiving than polyester, but I couldn't give up on this hat. I turned the headband inside out it is held in place by 4 small spots of glue and slightly spritzed the band and the hat area it would cover with 50/50 water/alcohol. I set the damp hat on a padded wig form larger than the hat and let dry 24 hours. Repeated this 3 more times adding thin layers of cotton material each time to enlarge the wig form. Place the material where you need the most change made. If you have enough material added each time, it will be tough to pull it onto the hat form. It fits like it was made for me now.

TONS of compliments on this hat! I'm not much for hats, but this one is just gorgeous! Was the perfect topper for my Victorian ensemble. The bow was a little too big and stuck out too much in view from the front, so I just pulled the ends out and made it smaller. It adjusted beautifully. I also put it on my mannequin's head to form it a bit since it is a little round for the typical human head. No points off though, it does need the shape to look the way it does. You will not be disappointed with this hat!

I have always loved hats especially period hats. Even as a child, I have always worn hats and never gave my mother an ounce of trouble keeping them on. I wish I could wear one every day. This is the most beautiful hat ever. When I took it out of the box, I walked around the house for an hour with it on my head. I even started to cook dinner and realized I better put this beauty away before I ruin it. This is not my first purchase from Victorian Trading and it won't be my last. Such beautiful things on every page and they all seem to bring you back to a better time. Thank you!!
