Dubbed the "Pie Crust" or "Air Wave this stunning design was originally created by Sally Victor for Mamie Eisenhower to wear at her husband's presidential inauguration in 1953. This version is probably a copy made by another milliner, possibly by a staff member at Innes department store. When you see the upside down photo you can see why it was called a pie crust. Chalk white molded hat with ribbon-like edging.
Innes was the major department store in Wichita Kansas, eventually became a Macy's.
