Although we usually associate the fedora with men (and it is a menswear look) it was originally worn by women. This pretty soft purple warm wool velour felt fedora is hand blocked over wooden hat blocks and hand sewn. The brim has a wire sewn to the brim edge that is then topped with a silk edging. The brim is a bit wider than a standard fedora, giving it a more feminine profile. The band and bow are in a soft and shiny dimensional dotted print in coordinating purple tones. It is embellished with a vintage rhinestone mother-of-pearl button atop a coordinating silk bow. Inner grosgrain headband helps it keep its shape and avoids damage from makeup. Comfortably fits a 21 - 22 inch head size. What a classic and great hat! This one simply never goes out of style.

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.
