From my ReStraw series, a lovely sunhat whose brim was too large to be stylish. I cut down the brim and coiled the excess pieces around crocheted leaves and flowers that I wired into a sprig. The sand-washed purple silk band is tied in a bow and is edged with tea-dyed lace. Additional lace 'leaves' and a purple button tie the look together. If you are planning a purple summer wedding, this would make a great bridal party hat.
