Meet "Pearl," a women's Pale Pink Open Weave Straw Summer Medium Brim Hat that is just the ticket for Kentucky Derby, Kentucky Oaks, Ladies Tea, or Church. The straw is an airy open weave and is soft pinks. The brim is shorter in the back and wider at the front and sides. It is completely hand blocked over vintage wooden hat blocks and then hand sewn. It has a low and shallow domed crown (top). It is adorned with an oversize ivory and pink silk rose and pale pink vintage band. A dotted vintage netting loop makes it extra special. An inner grosgrain ribbon headband helps protect it from becoming soiled. It perches atop the head and fits a 22 to 23 inch head.
In stock and ready to ship.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ FIT AND SIZE: Fits a 22 to 23 inch head size; I will add a narrow headband so it has no intention of going anywhere.
HOW TO MEASURE YOUR HEAD SIZE: Place a flexible tape measure around the widest part of your head above your ears and eyebrows, where the hat will sit. Take this measurement three times to make sure it’s accurate. Generally speaking, a small range is 20-21 inches; medium is 21 ½ to 22 ½ inches and large is 23 to 24 inches.
