1870s Day Dress

Hats talk, too. Sometimes we have sad moments with antique textiles. The hat (that this label came from) is perfect on the outside, but the lining and the pretty label are a bit weary. I’ll be replacing the lining and taking off the label and storing it archivally. I love it when the labels have the designer’s address! It humanizes it for me. She came from Paris, France and was probably the owner’s favorite hat.
