07:36 pm:  Nice to see Jet Set Sewing has a new post, after a long break. Also nice to see I'm not the only one who thinks the Pussy Hat has the bonus of resembling Schiaparelli's 1929 "Mad Cap:"

Hello, Kitty!

For some reason the second configuration looks like a Lady Penelope version of the International Rescue hats: Puppet Version of the show. In the new CGI version there's an hommage to them when one of the characters gets into the control room of the lost "Thunderbird prototype" (Thunderbird 0?). It, of course, has the old puppet control panels instead of the new holographic GUIs of this show and when he sits down in the chair he's stabbed by crown of one of the old hats. "I can't believe we used to wear these things!"

RE: Hello, Kitty!

If you tuck in both corners, it's a Jackie Kennedy/Dr. Girlfriend pillbox hat!
