This one of a kind pretty moss green vintage-inspired cloche is made completely by hand and is blocked over a vintage hat block. The steaming and blocking process produces it's unique shape. Once the hat is blocked, a wire is sewn into the brim to help it stay in the desired shape. I do all of the stitching by hand.
An asymmetrical brim is a flattering look on most women. This one is a bit longer on the right side. As with traditional cloche hats, the back of the brim is short and shallow. A shallow back brim prevents the hat from bumping into your coat collar.
The band is black dupioni silk and is topped with a black and silver striped bow, two spiral and a narrow bow out of the green felt, and a cool vintage rhinestone button. Reminds me of a hat that Miss Fisher would wear!
An inner grosgrain headband ribbon helps it keep its shape and avoids damage from makeup. Step out in style!

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.
