Victorian Hat, Kentucky Derby Hat "Sweetheart of Abilene" is a beautiful Southern Belle hat and it's made of white designer straw and the wide brim measures a full 22 inches in diameter. It's a gorgeous wide brimmed summer hat and it's perfect for that special tea party, Kentucky Derby, church, Mother's Day or Easter! It's adorned with beautiful pale pink roses accented with soft white velvet leaves. There's pink organza ribbons. The back of the hat is adorned with a large light pink tulle bow that cascades down the back. The brim of the hat has white Venice lace with seed pearls applied to it (venice lace may vary slightly on individual hats, but equally beautiful). It's a beautiful wedding hat and it's also perfect for that Southern Belle Tea party or picnic.
This hat is too wide brimmed for my hat boxes, it arrives in a sturdy shipper that can double as a hat box. I'm always on the lookout for XLarge hat boxes.
This hat size measures 22 5/8 inches and if needed I can include a hat size reducer so it can be made smaller for a perfect fit. Please see instructions below: How to measure your head.
Due to the nature of the hat and the fact that all items are hand-made and in many cases one-of-a-kind, there are absolutely no refunds.
All of my hats are handmade by me and they may vary slightly from the photograph, therefore making this hat virtually a "one of a kind".
Here's instructions on how to measure your head:
Place the string or tape around your head about 1/8" above your ear, across the mid-forehead, completely circling your head. Hold the tape firmly, but not too tightly. You need to measure your head exactly where the hat will sit. If your measurement falls between sizes, choose the next largest size.
I suggest measuring 3 times to make certain that you have the correct size.
