Clarissa (red with double brim)

Clarissa (red with double brim)

Since this Swiss raffia is so light, I can do a double brim without the hat becoming too heavy in looks or in weight.   The edge can be turned up or down as shown in pictures.   It is a simple design, with pinches in the crown to add some texture.  

  • character

    Inspired by literary chracter, Clarissa Dalloway, from the novel, Mrs. Dalloway, by VIrgina Wolf.   She is the lovely heroine as she struggles with finding deeper meaning while she is very fashionable and going to parties, concerned for her appearance at the same time.
