Edwardian Hat – Description to come.
The most popular hats during the 1909-1912 “Titanic Era” were enormous and large-brimmed. They were lavishly trimmed with ostrich feathers, whole birds, velvets, lace, flowers, and other embellishments.
These elaborate hats had various names including Merry Widow, Gainsborough, and Large Boater.
This type of hat required a long hat pin to hold it on a women’s head. As skirts became narrower, hats became wider.
In 1912, hats became somewhat narrower and taller.
