An incredible 50's inspired hat made with toy dominos, inspired by Dior and Breakfast at Tiffany's.
This vintage saucer shaped hat has been hand blocked in buckram and wired around the inside edge and rim. It has then been covered in a layer of muslin and felt to give it a soft smooth finish.The top has been decorated with wooden toy dominos which have been carefully placed and hand stitched all over. The underside rim has been covered in black felt and the inside has been lined with a vivid yellow silk dupion and finished with black petersham.
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, but if you would prefer white 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.
