know when this particular re-painting (of an oft-copied popular
painting) was done? I don't have the original post anymore, sorry.
I agree with Cynthia on the shape. I don't think you'll be able to
achieve it with fabric-over-support because of the curling twist in it.
My thought was to pull and block felt into the correct shape, like
the professional hatter on this list describes in her web page (sorry
again for not having the name.) Properly smoothed and shaped, I
don't see why it would be much different from a more "traditional"
shaped pulled-felt hat.
It's definitely beyond -my- mediocre abilities.
