This is one of the more creative and cute little hats of the 50's; a time known for its' dreariness in design. I do thank you for the cute hat pattern.

Wow, that would have been perfect for wearing to Mass (or any church that required the head to be covered). Does anyone remember the little round lace "doilies" we used to wear? I still have mine.

This would be lovely with a veil attached for a bride.
