English Sinamay Printed Dish Hat

English Sinamay Printed Dish Hat

258.00

In the 1950's, designer Christian Dior created the New Look, with the wasp waisted silhouette, and a full skirt. The New Look also brought a new shape in millinery.  
Thus the dish hat was born. The perfect topper to the curvaceous lines of his collection.
I have hand blocked this piece, and have completely hand stitched it through out. 
Size in this hat is irrelevant, as it sits atop the head, and is held securely in place with a discreet millinery elastic, worn under the nape. 
This printed straw fabric (sinamay) is imported from England, and the finest quality available! I have wired the edge for durability, and trimmed it with dupioni silk. The slick flower in the center is embellished with hand curled goose biot feathers.
The perfect summer hat for the races, a wedding, garden party, graduation, or wherever you choose. Guaranteed to turn heads!!
An heirloom quality piece of fine millinery.
NOTE: At the moment this is a custom order hat. Turn around time is 3-4 weeks, depending on work load.
