Sara Buckram Frame Hat

Available as a Pattern. Image on the left is shown as bare frame ready to be covered. Click through images on the right to see pictures of the Sara frame completed.

Sara Pattern Description: Although this hat sits atop the head, it fits down a little further than the others do and kind of snuggles onto the head. Great shape with the conical high crown. The brim is wider on the sides than the front and back so can be curled upward (or downward).

Great little Victorian hat for 1880-1890 - or even 1795 with the brim curled - one of my favorites to make!

The inspiration for this hat is the fashion plate from Godey's 1881. Note: Head shown is is 3/4 normal size
