Adventures in hat making: Edwardian hat, part 8, Searching for inspiration

Isn't this picture amazing! I just love the hat, it's a fine example of an extravagant Edwardian hat. It's the Portrait of the Marchesa Luisa Casati, with a Greyhound by Giovanni Boldini, dated to 1908.

The brim of the hat turned out not being rigid enough to retain the shape that I want. So I am going to make a wire frame for it. This is the look that I am currently aiming at.
