    Wow, you aren’t kidding!! These hats are just so lovely and so flattering for a variety of faces. Every time I see hats like this I wish I lived somewhere that had a great fashion program so I could take a class in millinery.

      If you go to , you can search your area for a milliner. Sometimes they will be teaching a class or workshop.

      Hope that helps!!
