Mad about Hats

I've been daydreaming about sun hats all winter. Now that temperatures are (very) slowly rising, I'm getting all the more excited to finally trade toques for Panamas and boaters!
Clearly not of the Panama-variety, but I figured it appropriate to post watercolour illustrations of English 19th century headwear as a tangent to the recent royal wedding (which Melody attended, via her television, and blogged about here).
How intricate does the detailing look in these!
(I have a feeling this blog will turn very English in a few months.)
Costume of the ladies of England, 1810-1823.
