Antique Style 1920s Gatsby Downton Abbey Silk Hat Peaches and Cream Lace & Vintage Silk Flowers Wedding

$265.00

Vintage Style FABULOUS fine lace Late Edwardian-early 1920's style garden party/wedding/tea hat, inspired by "Downton Abbey", "Titanic" and "The Great Gatsby"---of gorgeous cream lace over blush silk, with exquisite accents of vintage silk flowers and peach lace ruffles. Like all of my hats, this one is exquisitely hand made by me, from authentic patterns..... Absolutely sumptuous materials and vintage trimmings....yet so wearable today. This lovely style is a wonderful transition between the late Edwardian and early 1920's eras--- this could be worn with anything from a Titanic 1912 summer dress to a 1920's Gatsby style lace garden party outfit, it just adapts to whatever hairstyle and designs within that time period that are worn with it. I designed and created the pattern for this hat myself, in order to be exactly historically accurate with the correct oval shape and design that hats of this era had....it is a custom creation and not made from generic modern patterns! Beautifully light and wonderful for a Gatsby or Downton Abbey garden party! Individually made to order, approx. 6 weeks lead time.

PLEASE READ THE DESCRIPTION CAREFULLY before asking questions! All details about sizing, etc. are addressed here, so it's very important to READ all of this...thank you :-) This is a made to order hat, so PLEASE NOTE there is an approximate six week completion time BEFORE shipment, if this presents a problem for you please do not purchase.

I love antique and vintage clothing and have collected it for years, as well as having a longtime design career including doing costume & restoration work for major movie studios and museums....Am now translating that love to my own contemporary creations and using all the fine extraordinary antique and vintage materials, laces, trims, beads etc that I've collected for more than 30 years in these wonderful wearable pieces....along with the finest of hand sewing and one of a kind details. Everything I create is individually hand made solely by me and has the very best of my carefully hoarded private stash of superb old accents (I use ONLY vintage materials that are in pristine condition---no deteriorating, too-aged or rotting pieces EVER) plus the finest of modern silks, cottons and wools that I can find.....resulting in a fabulous truly authentic vintage look piece. Impeccable professional workmanship and design are the hallmarks here...

This exquisite beauty of a hat is a mix of contemporary and vintage laces; made of delicate floral-embroidered shimmery net lace layered and puffed over iridescent blush-tan silk, then sewn over a custom made buckram base, with a wide oval shaped brim, which is much wider from side to side and narrower at the back, in true, correct late Edwardian/early1920s style....At the side is a handsewn grouping of vintage fabric flowers: delicate peach colored and cream silk blooms with a focal of a large iridescent cream silk rose with petals lightly kissed with hints of peachy pink----so delicious! Ruffled accents of peach tinted delicate lace are tucked amongst the flowers.... The brim edge is bound & handsewn with more exquisite peachy-pink-toned and ivory antique lace..... just utterly beautiful details that take one's breath away. The fabric is just shimmeringly exquisite, the beautiful soft accents make this piece look extraordinarily vintage and ALL of the exterior decoration including the individual decorative elements, are painstakingly sewn on by hand, just as in the "old days".....I'm a stickler for primo "old school" workmanship! Fully lined in finest pure silk.....So perfect for someone who has undergone chemo too, as this is a very comfortable hat....I think everyone has the right to be beautiful--- and this would be a great gift for someone who needs that little lift and to feel so pretty....! Also a great piece for anyone to wear to a Great Gatsby, Downton Abbey or Art Deco vintage themed event, garden party or reenactment...this is as authentic and historically correct as it gets :-)

Please make sure you carefully note proper head measurements: this is a MADE TO ORDER hat and I generally make this particular style to fit up-to-medium sizes, my basic pattern measures about 25" inner circumference so I would say up to a size 24" head could wear this, any larger than that and it might be too snug for real comfort; however this style isn't close fitting as a traditional cloche is, so it really could be worn by just about anyone-- it depends on how you intend to wear it and the type of hairstyle you have. I have a 22.5 size head and this fits me well but not at all snugly over a smooth non curly hairstyle....the mannequin has a head measurement of about 22-22/5" and is wearing a very full, thick and curly hairdo... PLEASE NOTE that these hats are NOT adjustable or alterable so please do know your exact requirement before purchasing as there are no refunds or returns. Good idea to take your head measurement first--tape measure crossed over the forehead and just above the ears around the largest part of the head--before purchasing. This one sits much more on top of the head than my other, cloche style hats do, so it can go on a late Edwardian hairstyle as well....... Half an inch in headsize CAN make a difference so please, make sure you have exact size requirements in hand before you buy. If there is a specific size requirement you're looking for do let me know.
