Unique 3D percher hat that is blocked in two pieces, front and back, to create a circular beret that perches over the forehead. This version is rendered in a magenta sinamay straw then trimmed with three arrow-cut ostrich feathers, French veiling and a large silk rose.
Hat secures to head with a metal headband that is custom made for this design. It's currently painted a dark brown and should be worn with some of the hair styled over the band to hide it. I'll send some styling tips along with the hat. If your hair color is lighter, please add a note to your order. Ideally, the headband should match your hair color and be pretty invisible when worn.
Dimensions: 7" diameter base
Hat Box: 14"
Attachment: Custom headband with elastic
Each Milli Starr piece is meticulously hand-blocked and hand-stitched in my studio in Austin, Texas, using centuries-old couture methods. Everything ~ from brim-edges to petersham to trims ~ is stitched by hand with a needle and thread ~ no sewing machine, and never ever any glues.
