I reversed the colours as I wanted a subtlety coloured hat & the Silk Garden is the same I used for my Lady Eleanor.

I’m REALLY happy with the colour scheme but the hat doesn’t fit me very well. It’s not too bad on my daughter but I’ve got a lot of very thick hair so it lifts off my head & is too pointy! It’ll be frogged soon….
