Edwardian dresses and hats

These two dresses are quite similar in shape and style.  It makes me think of how Shirley and I could have the same sewing pattern and come up with completely different dresses.  So much so that one does not immediately think “these are the same dresses”.

The hat the mannequin dressers chose for the dress.  I think it is pretty!

The other dress had a plainer hat.

Plainer but with a bigger weave.  This one actually may be a replica.  I'm not sure.
