Lavender Bow Straw Hat

A second commission for an early 20th Century Style Women's Hat for a "Race Day" Fete.

The really wonderful thing with this one it that it is a surprise gift. Can you imagine someone commissioning a hand crafted hat as a gift? Wow! I was so surprised, amazed and honored to be asked to do this. The person who commissioned it wishes to remain anonymous. I have been practicing presentation to the recipient, working to be smooth in not giving away the person who is paying.

how fabulous - the lovely donor must know the recipient well to know her taste, though frankly what's not to love?

Thanks Nifty, never having seen the recipent, I too was a bit concerned, but good fortune was with us... delivered the hat a few hours ago..... a big hit, wonderful surprise AND The woman looks amazing in the hat, suits her very well. And fits nicely too. A big sigh of relief and happiness here. :)
