Edwardian boater style hat

Edwardian ladies cycling outfit

Edwardian ladies golfing outfit.

I just purchased this Edwardian Boater style hat. It's probably from the 1970's but does have the right style for my "practical" Edwardian Spring Costume Set. It has a beige cotton skirt, a white cotton blouse and a ladies vest. I still need to make a black or dark blue bow tie. The skirt and the blouse need some alterations.

This blouse used to have pintucks but I never was really satisfied with how they came out. I thought it looked rather messy. So I replaced the pintucks with wide lace, that I lined with silk.
