Darling dress, and yes, it's your color!

Hi Kristen,
I’ve just found you!
I love this umbrella fabric and it suits this dress perfectly.
Hopefully, you can help me with a small “hat” dilemma. I too, wear lots of vintage hats (mostly to church). We recently moved and I unearthed my 37 year old wedding hat. I want to refashion it so I can wear it, but am at a total loss as to what to do. The brim is much too big, it’s covered in a white lace, and has WEDDING written all over it. I took off the veil and the trim around the top and am left with a lacy wedding hat with a wide brim. Any ideas how to make this wearable again?
Thanks so much,

ps - I can sew rather well.

A great choice of fabric. I love the little umbrellas and slashes of rain. The double collar certainly adds interest to the garment. I can see that collar in two fabrics adding a nice detail to a dress. I'm going to look for a similar pattern. I enjoy dropping by and checking out your sewing projects.
