Royal blue felt button hat with wired and embroidered felt faux feathers.
This cocktail hat is perfect for all formal occasions including race day meets and weddings.
The button hat base is approximately 17cm wide (6.5 inches), 4 cm high (1.5 inches) and 53cm (21 inches) in circumference.
The felt faux feathers have been cut by hand and millinery wire is encased in the machine embroidery to create flowing lines that hold their shape.
These add approximately 6cm (2.5 inches) extra in height to the hat. However, they can be shaped to reduce of increase the height to suit the wearer.
The hat is fully lined with a contrasting orange and blue paisley print silk twill and trimmed with a coordinating petersham ribbon.
This hat is designed to be worn to the right of the head and attaches with an adjustable black elastic.
This hat has been hand-blocked using traditional millinery techniques. This piece is almost entirely hand sewn apart from a small amount of machine stitching to the lining and the trimming.
***This is a one of a kind design however, it could be re-made in an alternative colour to suit your outfit. Please do drop me an message if you would like to discuss this option***
