Vibrant wide brim hat for the races or just any place you want to make sure you get noticed. A vintage style Victorian/Edwardian hat made using traditional millinery techniques. The hat has a buckram frame with crushed velvet as the overlay in natural rust earthy tones. The band and edging is done in faille, a ribbed fabric, accented with a over sized mum flower. This hat is completely hand made by me and can be made in a large variety of colors. The wide brim measures 14 1/2" from side to side.
Hat will fit most and is READY TO SHIP.
I created this hat by studying a Victorian Millinery Course book dating back to 1915. The hat is made using these same traditional millinery techniques in which buckram, stretched over a vintage wooden hat block forms the shape of the crown. The crown is then wired for strength and stability. The brim is made in the same buckram fabric and is hand shaped to form the curved shape and is also reinforced with a wired edge.
Contact me for a illustration for measuring your head size. I have a turn around time of 10 business days on this style hat.
