Doily Hat/Mauve

Doily Hat/Mauve

138.00

Quite possibly the most romantic hats I've ever done, are these hand dyed, upcycled doily hats!  This latest one, has raised the bar with a French theme in the shabby chic textiles.  The close up photos show the rustic cotton ribbon is printed with French post card messages, and post marks.  Entirely hand sewn, the edge is wired for durablity, and finished with a delicate rosette trim. Lavish blooms, and vintage millinery flowers, and velvet leaves adorn the double bow.  Light as air ostrich fronds wave in the breeze, picking up the colors of the cotton ribbon. I have finished the pointed edge of the brim with pink glass rain drop beads.  Stiffened with professional, non-toxic milliners gelatin.  I would recommend not wearing this hat in the rain, despite the suggestion of rain drops!!  One size fits all, and this hat stays securely in place with a discreet millinery elastic worn under the hair at the back of the head. Lovely with mauve, lavender, taupe, pink, and shades of brown.  The perfect wedding or church hat!!  Or maybe even Ascot!!!
