|Title||Southern Airways Stewardess Uniform Hat|
|Collection||Southern Airways Uniforms: Flight Attendants|
|Description||Navy blue overseas cap. Decorative stitched seams overall. Two white ribbons on the left side of cap.|
This hat was worn by Southern Airways Stewardess Wilma Estes. This hat was part of Southern's longest-running flight attendant uniform style - from 1951 until 1965, consisting of a navy blue jacket, skirt and cap. Lightweight fabrics suited the mild winters and hot summers of the southeastern United States.
The uniform was worn year-round until 1959; then in winters only. The original white or cream blouse was a button-down, v-neck style with a collar, worn until 1954, when it was replaced with an overblouse with standing collar and back zipper. Short, white gloves completed the look.
