I’ve had the design for this hat in mind for over a year now. White. Simple. Just a bit of cloche-shaping at the bottom. And, of course, a giant flower on the side. I made it a daisy for no reason other than the fact I wanted to try and make one, but I think it looks great. It’s a beautiful spring hat, and I’m ready for Spring!
