Lily Alexania Hat

Lily Alexania Hat Inspired by the bold hats worn in the Edwardian Era and named for a survivor of the Titanic, this felted hat is ridiculously quick to knit due to the loose gauge and large needles. It practically knits itself.


Tess Tess of the D’Urbervilles follows the life of its herione from maiden to mother to milkmaid to mistress to murderer. I can imagine Tess wearing this corset-styled vest with its delicate, crocheted lace edging. The neckline is a flattering U-shape and the waist is shaped with ribbing for a snug, comfortable fit.
