I love antique and vintage clothing and have collected it for years, as well as having a longtime design career including doing costume & restoration work for major movie studios and museums....Am now translating that love to my own contemporary creations and using all the fine extraordinary antique and vintage materials, laces, trims, beads etc that I've collected for more than 30 years in these wonderful wearable pieces....along with the finest of hand sewing and one of a kind details. Everything I create is individually hand made solely by me and has the very best of my carefully hoarded private stash of superb old accents (I use ONLY vintage materials that are in pristine condition---no deteriorating, too-aged or rotting pieces EVER) plus the finest of modern silks, cottons and wools that I can find.....resulting in a fabulous truly authentic vintage look piece. Impeccable professional workmanship and design are the hallmarks here...
This exquisite little beauty of a cloche, which is one of my most popular styles, is made of lightweight pink and white checked silk taffeta....this is augmented with a fabulous wide band of the most intricate & exquisite white antique lace from the 20's. backed by solid light pink silk. This gorgeous band is bordered at top and bottom by delicate white rococo ribbonwork garland trim and handmade vintage white crochet lace....so exquisite! At the side is a delicate fan of pleated white antique silk jacquard ribbon behind a big handmade, hand tinted, "shabby chic" soft pink silk chiffon flower with a white silk multi-looped ribbon bow accent..... The brim edge is bound with more of the handsewn vintage white crochet lace..... just utterly beautiful details that take one's breath away. The fabric is just shimmeringly exquisite, the delicate accents make this piece look extraordinarily vintage and ALL of the exterior decoration including the individual decorative elements, are painstakingly sewn on by hand, just as in the "old days".....I'm a stickler for primo "old school" workmanship! Fully lined in finest silk as well.....This would be just darling with a white lace/batiste sheer 20's summer dress So perfect for someone who has undergone chemo too, as this is a very comfortable hat....I think everyone has the right to be BEAUTIFUL and this would be a great gift for someone who needs that little lift and to feel so pretty....! Also a great piece for anyone to wear to a vintage themed event or reenactment...this is as authentic and historically correct as it gets :-) Looks fabulous with the brim worn up or down, though I think it's best up. Please make sure you carefully note proper head measurements: this is a SMALL sized hat, smaller than my usual standard size......it measures only 22" inner circumference so the wearer's head SHOULD NOT BE LARGER THAN 21 3/4". My mannequin has a 21 1/2" head and this fits her head WITHOUT hair quite well so do keep that in mind; PLEASE NOTE that these hats are NOT adjustable, alterable or returnable so please do know your exact requirement before purchasing as there are no refunds or returns. To take your head measurement: --use a tape measure crossed over the forehead and just above the ears around to the largest part of the head. The 1920's cloche is meant to be a close fitting hat and hairstyle should kept to a minimum for the proper look....... Half an inch in head size CAN make a difference so please, make sure you have exact size requirements in hand before you buy. Also, please do read my shop policies/shipping info in full BEFORE you purchase (click on "policies" on my main shop page). Be sure to look at all of the numerous photos of this hat that I have posted on my Facebook page---many more views than I can show here... All hat shipping is BOXED and trackable USPS Mail including overseas; and there are no returns or exchanges on headwear!
