This hat would be right at home on Downton Abbey! The shape is a classic 1920s cloche. What makes this hat special is that it is a vintage piece of wool felt that had never been made into a hat. It has a great eyelash pattern with a long, silky soft nap. The back brim is quite shallow and the sides and front are longer, in a true cloche profile. It is hand blocked using traditional millinery techniques, including steaming, shaping, and hand sewing. I trimmed it with a piece of brown pleated ribbon topped with a narrow band of beige vintage velvet. It is topped with a flower. The grosgrain drawstring inner band can be tightened or loosened to fit as small as a 21 inch head size and as large as 23 inches. What a special and unique piece this one is!
