|Lady Edward Bentinck, |
Painted by George Romney
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!!!
The hat in the portrait seems to hint that it was a straw hat to begin with (seeing the slight ridges along the brim) and covered tightly with white silk, bunched silk gauze at the crown then finished with a lovely, large blue bow.

|That is a wool cherry ;)|
The hat was lined with a changable blue silk which was also used for the bow at the side as well as the ties. I love it because it's a surprise when you see the underside, the rest of the hat is so very white!
|The lovely blue lining, all my stitches too!|
|"The Lady Bentinck"|
|I'll model it for you...|
What do you think? I think it turned out pretty well ;)
