Victorian Costume Wide Brim Velvet Hat with Large Flower

Great for fall and winter, a wide brim hat for the races or just any place you want to make sure you get noticed. A 1900's Victorian/Edwardian vintage inspired hat made using traditional millinery techniques. The hat has a buckram frame with crushed velvet as the overlay in natural rust earthy tones. The band and edging is done in faille, a ribbed fabric, accented with a over sized mum flower. This hat is completely hand made by me and can be made in a large variety of colors.

If you do not know your head measurement take a look at the photo section of this listing. Here you will find photos of how to measure your head. Do this several times as an accurate measurement is important. Pull the tape taught to the point you would wear your hat. When purchasing, if you are between sizes, chose the next largest size. If you are having any problems feel free to contact me.

SHIPPING........is included in the US. If you live outside the US and would like to make a purchase contact me thru hatsbygail@gmail.com. Let me know which style hat and the country in which you reside. I will figure up the shipping price. As most of these sales are for custom orders it is impractical to include the shipping price in the listings.

I created this hat by studying a Victorian Millinery Course book dating back to 1915. The hat is made using these same traditional millinery techniques in which buckram, stretched over a vintage wooden hat block forms the shape of the crown. The crown is then wired for strength and stability. The brim is made in the same buckram fabric and is hand shaped to form the curved shape and is also reinforced with a wired edge.
