Young Girls Model Hats
Young Girls Model Hats – Girls were encouraged to wear hats reflecting the styles of their mothers, and were specially made to be very pretty as well as practical, in that they were in many cases tied on with elastic or ribbons. Running around causing a hat to fly off, this was not ladylike at all, so sedate walking only was allowed when wearing the Sunday best clothes and hats. Here are some very special and colourful prints I found within the fashion journals in the early 1900’s.
Looking back to 1849 – This young girl had a large straw hat with ribbons and the ladies had traditional bonnets. An illustration from Des Demoiselle book.
Ribbon Ties were demure and hand stitched fringes attached to the ribbons for these hats.
The next images belong to the Le Petit Echo de la Mode and are very rare. Dated Sunday 17 October 1909. Five hats are published on the front cover and are quite beautiful. The whole page is faded yellow with age but we have managed to scan and get the colours enhanced and sharpened.
These small brimmed hats were applied with satin gathered bands and then bows and rushes were also added.
The last image was faded because of the age but is worth putting into our archive. An excellent record of a particular hat design.
