Every girl needs a pretty hat

Now that I had a top hat, I was determined to dress it up.   But I didn't know exactly what I wanted to do with it.  I had a bunch of millinery trimmings that I'd collected over the years, but there were just too many choices.  Did I want to use the black tulle, the coarser netting or the Russian millinery veiling? Feathers?  Were feathers and something else too much with the tulle?

Finally, I just decided to play until I got something I liked.  Ironically, I gave up that night, completely unsatisfied.  But when I took a look at it the next costuming session, I found that I liked what I'd come up with very much.
