Black Regal Hat

Oh this hat! I swooned a bit when making it. I dove into creating subtle waves on the sides of this hat, sweeping up into the focal point, beads. Sparkly vintage beads. The upper most beaded portion was taken whole from a vintage garment and attached, then the lower bit was hand beaded with vintage beads. I love the art deco lines that are created in both the bead-work and the hat itself. The color subdues the artful pleating, but nothing can hide the glimmer of those bead. Please, take this one to a show, a ballet, or just to dinner. Take her somewhere, because she’s all dressed up and ready to go.

This hat is available for purchase here!
This will fit a 22 1/2″ circumference head or smaller
To measure your head, wrap the measuring tape around your head, right above your ears. Make sure it crosses the bump in the middle back of your head. Be sure not to pull it tight, we want this hat to be comfy. You should probably measure a few times, just to be sure.

Your hat comes housed in a lovely reusable box, good for storage, perfect for gifting. Though not as sturdy as a traditional hat box, this one comes without additional charge.

Each of my hats are original and hand blocked. They are created with the wearer in mind, for those looking for something wearable, but nowhere near plain. I take inspiration where it comes and am constantly thinking of new shapes and designs. I hope they speak to you.
