Summer rain hat: waterproof acetate, cotton lining, 2011
We've had some steamy, rainy days as summer ebbs. A rain hat made previously was warm and practical in cold weather, yet was proving mighty hot in summer!

Using material remaining from a raincoat sewn in the spring,  constructed a summer-weight wide brim rain hat with a deep crown (so hair can be worn up underneath).  

Love to be without the extra weight of an umbrella! (Maybe come autumn rain will sew a waterproof bag.)
