made in britain
This is a unique one-off piece made using a beautiful embroidered silk with pearls, a handselected vintage brooch and a birdcage veil.
Perfect for a vintage themed wedding.
The base has been hand blocked with buckram and millinery wire, then covered in a layer of muslin and felt to give it a soft, smooth finish. It has then been decorated with a layer of cream satin which is covered in embroidery and miniature faux pearls. Sitting on the edge of the beret sits a beautiful marcasite and faux pearl brooch, with a merry widow veil falling vertically to one side. The inside is lined with a beautiful cotton print and finished with a cream petersham trim.
The hat is attached with a piece of thin white elastic, which is not visible on even the darkest of hair and keeps it in place well, but if you would prefer black elastic please let me know. Alternatively, I can insert a hair comb or clip for you instead, but from my experience, the elastic feels more secure and is much easier to position into place.
If you would like something similar but, made using your own piece of jewellery or different colour material please get in touch and we can discuss your design wishes in more detail.
Please note that as we use vintage jewellery and trimmings no two pieces are exactly the same.
