A Mr John Hat - Restored with Additions

A really exciting restoration. A lady in the local area made a great score on this olive green Mr John hat. It however had a badly torn veil. She brought it to Grandma's Attic to see if a new veil could be attached and if a Pheasant feather could be added. OH YES! cried I.

It took a bit to locate the veiling, but with that found and the customer supplying Pheasant feathers. This is the result.

A really fabulous opportunity. Mr John hats are so wonderful, it is such a treat to be able to bring them back for another round of wearing pleasure.

What a sweet hat! I do love veils and hope the lady will wear the hat and not just display it. You did a GREAT job restoring it!
