Wow, now that's a great hat! At least that's what people will say when you wear this classic black 1920s style cloche hat. The hat is hand sculpted with a pleat that runs from the back of the hat around to the front. The asymmetrical brim is folded on the right for an interesting design feature. The band is black dupioni silk ribbon topped with a vintage rhinestone pin for just the right amount of sparkle. Inner grosgrain headband helps it keep its shape and avoids damage from makeup. A stunning hat that looks straight out of the 1920s!
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ FIT AND SIZE: Comfortably fits a 21 to 23 inch head size
HOW TO MEASURE YOUR HEAD SIZE: Place a flexible tape measure around the widest part of your head above your ears and eyebrows, where the hat will sit. Take this measurement three times to make sure it’s accurate. Generally speaking, a small range is 20-21 inches; medium is 21 ½ to 22 ½ inches and large is 23 to 24 inches.
I am happy to make a hat just for you according to your wishes. I send lots of photos and options during the process so that there are no surprises and you get just what you want. Please send me a message and we will work out the details. One caveat: I will not "copy" the work of another artists or maker.
