White Russian

More of the hat parade - can you believe I have twenty of these to show off?

Today's hat is a 1960's straw hat, simply trimmed with Millinery Net and a grosgrain ribbon. The dress is another thrift store find. It's very 60's and I can imagine someone wearing this with an enormous beehive - the sleeves are really southern country line dance! I wanted a red belt to wear with this dress to match the red buttons on the collar and shoulders so I made one, and I had to replace the elastic in it since it was worn out. Some of you may recognize the shoes from my wedding!
