* My personal hat design: center green mesh allows escape of heat and air circulation, floral back, fine (bug deterent ) netting, faux feather, fabric flowers and leaves, chiffon swirls on a medium straw brim (between a wide and a short). The feather and flower spray are for fancy dress. The summer hat to be worn regularly won't have that part.
