Another old hat makeover

This cute 40s 'doll' or tilt hat was in fine shape when I got it, but I added a few things to it to match an outfit I'm planning. I bought some yardage of silk taffeta on sale at Britex a while back, in a black and white windowpane pattern that matches the ribbon- sometime, maybe this winter, I'll make an 1890s-style dress out of it, and the style of the hat is similar to little top hats ladies were wearing at the time, so I thought it might work.
