I had a lot of mixed feelings about this hat. It makes Louisa look so stuffy - prim and proper and all about showing off. But making this wasn't all that hard, and I was able to get it done in a day. I made a few mistakes, but I think that only I will notice those!I like the fabric and the decorations, so I guess she will wear it with her walking dress. So, here's some pics of Louisa in her 2 piece walking dress and silk hat.
