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!!

Gorgeous hat, fabulous quality. I know I will enjoy this hat for many years. It's a solid quality hat that arrived in perfect condition. You can tell this hat was made by hand by people who care. Every detail is perfect, the hat is thick, the flower is nicely formed, the netting in front is just right, and the bow in the back is perfectly formed, long, and flowing. I can't wait to wear it. This hat is versatile and will go with many different types of outfits. I haven't worn it yet, but I'm sure when I do I'll receive a torrent of compliments! Thank you

This hat is so adorable! Very nice quality. As stated in other reviews, it is stiff, but then it should be to hold the shape. The rear vail is very long...I will be figuring out some way to make it shorter. I will definately be wearing this for dressier activities/occasions and I need to figure out just the right clothing to go with it...want it to show off perfectly.
