Crossword Genius

Iron Lady's hat (6)


I believe the answer is:


'hat' is the definition.
(I know that fedora is a type of hat)

'iron lady's' is the wordplay.
'iron' becomes 'Fe' (Fe is the chemical symbol for iron).
'lady' becomes 'dora' ().

(Other definitions for fedora that I've seen before include "Type of hat" , "Or fade away with man's soft felt hat" , "Style of hat" , "Felt hat, dented lengthwise" , "top fashion" .)

I've seen this clue in The Guardian and The Telegraph.
