This simple, yet elegant, Edwardian Girl's Hat, by Flossie Potter, is representative of the period when girls' fashion was a mere pint-sized imitation of their mothers. After the first decade of the 20th century we begin to see a shift from large, ostentatious hats to smaller ones that still maintained many of the design elements from the previous craze.
The Flossie Potter Edwardian Girl's Hat displays a narrow brim that is ruched on the outside and on the lining. A small bouquet of feathers is supported by a braid trim knot in front, and the unique crown swirls into a rosette on top.

I just purchased the Flosie Potter Edgarian Girl Hat. What is the pattern number of the coat pattern she is wearing on the hat pattern? The edgarian girl hat turned out great! As always Flossie Potter has created another winner!
As usual, Flossie Potter directions are clear and photos are helpful. This is a well thought out design and construction. I am very happy with my hat.
