Molly Bloom (single tiers, black tweed, circles)
This is my first try at adding circles to this Molly Bloom style. It seemed to fit the narrower brim (just 2 inches) this style and add a lot of interest. There are three fibrs of braid in this, hemp crown, toyoline tweed brim and raffia circles.
Molly Bloom is the main female in Ulyssess by James Joyce. Written in 1922, this hat seems like it has a vintage feel, not quite like a cloche though. Maybe more Irish? I have to admit that I not read all of the great work...but I have listend to half of it on audio and someday I will finish it!
