For traveling nothing is better than a costume of serge or other serviceable woollen goods, tailor-made. The hat should be chosen with discretion. A becoming one gives a woman a distinct moral support. It should be small, that the brim may not catch in the wind, and without feathers that fear dampness or flowers that fade in the sunshine.
Etiquette for All Occasions
Mrs. Burton Kingsland, 1901
Words cannot convey how much I adore the idea of a hat so becoming it provides moral support. This hat is so adorable it just might do the trick! The gathers on the side are created by working a short-row panel then using a tab to pull the brim up and crumple the extra fabric into lovely pleats. The result is delightfully asymmetric and totally flattering.
