What kind of hat for the Lottie dress?

I’ve been looking at pictures in a book in my library (Victorian and Edwardian Fashion a Photographic Survey), trying to decide what kind of hat to wear with the Lottie dress once it is done.

I could use ones I have if push comes to shove…

1845 (1)

I’d have to take the flowers off…they’d clash.

1850's

The color would be okay…but the brim is too big. 

1861

This one is the best option from hats I already have.

I’d like to make one along these lines.  IMG_20190323_151837.jpg

I really like those smaller bonnets!  For indoor wear I have something a bit like this…

I also don’t mind this…
