Garden Shabby Straw Hat

Pictured above is a darling little child's straw hat that was purchased from: Too Cute and Girly's Etsy Shoppe. This hat is to coordinate with the dress that I made for The Scientific Seamstress' I Love To Read Sewing Challenge. The cloche shape was very popular in the early Edwardian era. My thought is that the hat is shaped kinda like a flower pot, which suits the book that I chose for the Challenge, The Secret Garden. The roses represent the roses that bloomed in that garden. The shabby/vintage style is quite popular these days. Do you like that style? To see the coordinating dress for the Challenge, follow this link: I Love To Read Sewing Challenge: my entry.
