A quirky nautical themed pillbox hat with a vintage toy gallion ship. This is one if you want to stand out from the crowd!
Perfect for the races, a cocktail party or burlesque event.
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 covered in a deep blue silk dupion and finally decorated with red and cream diagonal striped linen ribbon, creating a ruffled wave effect. Sitting on top is a cream vintage toy gallion ship and a small gold painted plastic button with engraved anchor detail. The inside is lined with red and white striped cotton and finished with red petersham ribbon.
The headdress is attached with a piece of thin black elastic, which is not visible 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.
