Cream half hat covered silk chiffon roses. Dark blue netting makes this a perfect something blue for your wedding. Built on a buckram base with an integrated front and back stay on each side helps hold the hat in place.

Half hats are a brimless shallow hat that usually sits flat on top of the crown - like an extra wide bandeau. The half hat was created by Lilly Dache, who won an American Designer award for it in 1941. Dior designed veiled half hats beginning in 1947. They remained popular during the 1950s and morphed into variations including openwork half-hats comprised of a wired piping frame with flowers, feathers or other trims. Check out Madge's article on half hats

1960s Straw Hat, Breton by Luci Puci. Hat Size 20, Mauve Hat, Womens Hats, Vintage Hats

Really lovely spring vintage hat.
Approx. Hat Size: 22" (56 cm); Total Diameter: 13.5" (34 cm); Height: 1.5" (56 - cm); Width of brim varied from 2.5" - 3" (6 - 7 cm)

Shallow Breton hat from woven parasisal straw. Mauve hat with a light sheen and the crown is ringed with three large flat bows in the same color. Lovey floral petersham ribbon sweatband inside. Parasisal is the preferred straw for expensive millinery because it is both finer and longer-lasting than most other hat-making straw.
Lucy Puci (Loosey Poosey) was the brainchild of Lucylle Smith Gilbert who rose from apprentice to principle designer for Chicago based millinery company Lemington Inc. Gilbert designed hats for first ladies Mamie Eisenhower and Pat Nixon. Another loyal hat buyer was Carol Channing. In the company’s heyday the company produced over 900 hats per day under various labels. Gilbert, famous for designing 10 – 15 different hat styles per day, had a very interesting way of working. Instead of sketching her ideas she drew inspiration from the materials on hand. Other labels by the company were Lemington and Sam Budwig. Lemington closed sometime in the late 1960s. Gilbert died in 1994 at the age of 86.
Breton style which means a rounded or flat-crowned hat with a brim that turns up around the edges, originally worn by peasants in Brittany, a region in France.
Innes was a major department store in Wichita, Kansas
