1950's Hand Woven Half Hat

1950's Hand Woven Half Hat

178.00

Ever the pack rat/conservator, I almost never throw anything away, without first asking myself, what can I create with this? VERY different from hoarding, just to make that point emphatically clear!! This half hat, which is a throw back, (pardon the unintentional pun), is reminiscent of the 1950's, think Diors' New Look and Doris Day. A hat, I think, which is long overdue its' renaissance, as it is a very chic little cap, and not the least bit intimidating to those who are hat phobic! I have repurposed felt trimmings from other blocked hats in this shop, and have woven them into an entirely new fabric to create this hat. Once woven and hand finished, it was then blocked (steam formed) over a buckram and wire frame. Trimmed in a hint of wool houndstooth, the bold graphics play off each other perfectly. Finally, finished with an additional sculptural element of Chinese soutache ball buttons. Entirely hand sewn, and lined in a matching mini houndstooth taffeta. This hat will fit any head size, as it can be bent to hug your head comfortably, as you choose. A one of a kind piece of couture millinery. Dress it up or down, and be fabulous!! In stock and ready to ship. US deliveries in about 1 week from the date of purchase.
