"Hawes" must have been the company name and "von Gal" the line? Not too catchy. Maybe that's why they aren't a household name now. Because the hats were great! (But why did they need height, weight and waist measurement to fit a hat?)
Welcome! I have this blog to share the treasures I find related to vintage sewing, and vintage fashion with occasional detours into whatever crosses my path. Everything I post is from some actual item I found. If you'd like to buy something you see contact me.
I sell sewing patterns for a living, you'll see the link below. Come on by!
