Dubbed the "Pie Crust" or "Air Wave this stunning design was originally created by Sally Victor for Mamie Eisenhower to wear at her husband's presidential inauguration in 1953.  You can see a photo here: http://bbc.in/2iFcnjL.  

This version is probably a copy made by another milliner, possibly by a staff member at Innes department store.  When you see the upside down photo you can see why it was called a pie crust.  Chalk white molded hat with ribbon-like edging.  

Innes was the major department store in Wichita Kansas, eventually became a Macy's.

HOW TO FIND YOUR HAT SIZE

1. Pull a fabric tape measure or length of string around your head just slightly above the ear, across the mid-forehead, completely circling your head.

2. Hold the tape firmly, but not too tightly. You are measuring your head exactly
where the hat will sit in either inches or centimeters.

3. If your measurement falls between sizes, choose the next largest size.
