A Circus, Burlesque themed hat made with red silk and black stary glittered net, complete with fan.
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 finish. It has then been covered in a vivid red silk dupion and a layer of carefully positioned net with a glittery star design. . Sitting to the side of the hat the net gathers and fans out. This section is decorated with a cluster of vintage beads and buttons. It is lined in a black and red rose print cotton and trimmed with a red petersham trim.
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 for you instead, but from my experience the elastic feels more secure and is much easier to position into place.
****Please note, this hat is one of a kind made using vintage buttons and beads, so there will be a slight variation from the images you see here, making it all the more unique****
If you would like something similar but, made using your own piece of jewellery or different colour fabric, please get in touch and we can discuss your design wishes in more detail.
