Doily Boater with Bow/ Red & White

A vintage, hand dyed crocheted doily, finds its' way onto a hand blocked Edwardian styled boater hat, in white sinamay straw. This charming hat was hand blocked over a vintage hat block, and stiffened with professional milliners', non-toxic gelatin. Entirely hand sewn; no glue is used, and the crown and brim are wired for durability. A French bow, is hand assembled with three different ribbons, and for a bit of panache, I have finished with a halo of red Russian veiling, and a splash of it at the bow as well. This hat is held on with a thin, discreet white millinery elastic, worn under the hair at the back of the head. Perfect for that summer wedding!! A one of a kind piece of fine millinery.

NOTE: At the moment, this is a custom order hat. Please convo me with your head measurement, PLUS one finger under the tape for comfort. Turn around time is 3-4 weeks, depending on work load.
