Navy Polkadot Boater with Vintage Veil
Inspired by the French Chanteuse Girls form the 1940's!
Charming little boater is made from darling navy and white polka dot silk fabric. Decorated with "absolutely perfect" silk and tiny chenille dot vintage veil. The veil was Made In France in the 1940's. Three little vintage cherries and a touch of vintage silk velvet ribbon finish off the hat with a jaunty little twist. Hat is made with traditional millinery techniques. The fabric is completely hand sewn onto a buckram frame that I made.
Inside of hat has taffeta lining and a high quality metal comb attached to hold onto head. I also sewed in 2 small elastic loops for attaching bobbie pins for extra hold.
