This hat looks amazing. It reminds me of the sorting hat from Hogwarts. It is cut and sewn to maintain the twisted, lopsided look of a well used witch's hat. It has a decent weight to it and folds back down for storage with no discernible damage or distortion.
I agree with the earlier reviewer, however, about the drawback of this hat - it won't sit on my head properly. I have an average sized head but the hat just won't pull down far enough to feel secure. There is something in the design of the headband that leaves it perched precariously. This was a major flaw in my opinion as I bought it to go to a fancy dress party and did not want to be fiddling and fussing with my hat all night. There's no way it will stand up to trick or treating outdoors with my children.
