That hat is nothing short of spectacular!

This is really a growing trend...just saw this short video on the CNN site about a person who deconstructs and remakes "old duds" as they put it:

There are so many different styles and trends as part of this movement!

Maggie, Thanks for passing along the video! I just found out that the link above doesn't work- but, you can check out the video if you cut and paste the following address into your browser: http://myprops.org/content/Fashion-chemistry/ -Lulu

oh! after battling rain on the brain...such a sweeeet surprise to see Me! and smokey...I've been cutting it up (if it's damaged) for decades...thanks for featuring some of my very fave supah-sellers/crafters!

The Smokey the Bear print is so much fun! -Lulu

Awww, thanks for the nod!! I just want to make clear I *never* use a viable, good condition vintage piece to create something from. Mine are created from pieces not restorable OR vintage millinery supplies. Great vintage in good condition is so hard to find I would never want to encourage people to destroy it just to use its fabric or design elements! I always restore when possible, its the pieces that I couldn't fix I decided to make use of.

Thanks Lulu!!

It's such a beautiful hat! -Lulu
