A cute silver and black striped pillbox hat with domino pieces perfect for a Rockabilly or Burlesque outfit.
The base has been hand blocked with buckram and milliney wire, then covered in a layer of muslin and felt to give it a soft, smooth finish. It has then been covered in a black and silver stripe lurex fabric. Finally it has been decorated with two wooden dominos!
The hat is attached with a piece of thin black elastic, which is not visable on even the fairest of hair and keeps it in place well. Alternatively, I can insert a hair comb or clip, but from my experience the elastic feels more secure and is much easier to position..
