Vintage Style 1920s Flapper Gatsby Downton Abbey Cloche Hat of absolutely luscious iridescent dusty aqua silk brocade, with a marvelous elaborate band of antique silk hand embroidery...Like all of my hats, this one is exquisitely hand made from authentic 1920's patterns, absolutely sumptuous pure silk materials and lavish antique trimmings....yet so wearable today....this one looks soooo incredibly vintage as all of the materials used are antique/vintage and the colors/tones are all deliciously subtle yet extraordinarily rich....a perfect Gatsby/Downton Abbey event or Art Deco party cloche! And, this hat is especially wonderful for the chemo patient as it fits closely to the head and looks soooo feminine and glamorous....everyone will ask "WHERE did you get that, it's so gorgeous!"...I've just listed a fabulous matching elaborate aqua lace jacket (not included in this listing) please scroll down to the bottom of the page/check my other offerings for it....
I must take a moment to say THANK YOU to all the wonderful people who've become fans of my work...I love to know that my pieces inspire and delight others and am so appreciative of your wonderful encouragement and praise. :-) Am also very proud to have created the jewelry for America's Got Talent finalist and extraordinary performer, Prince Poppycock, for his last four performances on NBC's AGT during August and September, 2010! Please check out my fanpage at http://www.facebook.com/SavannahParkerDesigns on Facebook as I have many MORE photos of each of my items there, posted there in fullsize albums...be sure to click "like" on my FB page and you will be among the very first to see my newest creations + special offers just for my Facebook followers.

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, rare 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 cloche is made of soft shimmery light aqua pure silk satin brocade.....to this I've added a lush, wide band of fantastic antique hand embroidery of aquamarine, ivory and pearl grey silks and gold metallic thread superbly worked on dusty aqua silk....this antique piece is from my collection of exquisite hand embroideries....This lavish band, which is entirely hand done (the delicacy and intricacy of this has to be seen to be believed!), is further accented with antique 1920s era woven silk pearl grey and aqua trim in an intricate design, and a band of corded antique ivory silk trim at top edge.... At the side is a magnificent layered accent of vintage lace, corded antique ivory silk trim, ruffled soft pearl grey silk satin and a handmade Czech aqua iridescent glass ornament touched with gold, pearls and tiny aquamarine rhinestones....The brim edge of the hat is bound with more of the pearl grey and aqua antique silk trim and a row of the corded antique ivory silk trim just below it, all handsewn... 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.....This one is a medium size and made from VERY choice rare materials in my collection.... 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 :-) The brim is best worn turned up to show off the lovely underside vintage trimmings, though it can be worn down as well.
Please make sure you carefully note proper head measurements: this is a ready made hat (however the lining will be put in after it is sold) and I've made this particular hat to fit up-to-medium sizes, it measures approx. 24" inner circumference so I would say up to a size 23/23 1/4" head could wear this, any larger than that and it would probably be too snug for real comfort, I have a 22.5 size head and this fits me nicely and perfectly....if you have a small head and your hair is flat, this might be somewhat loose on you.....mannequin has a 22" head but very fluffy hair, so do keep that in mind. 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--tapemeasure crossed over the forehead and just above the ears around to the largest part of the head--before purchasing. The 1920's cloche is meant to be a close fitting hat and hairstyle should kept to a minimum for the proper look....... 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, and I will keep that in mind when creating future styles.....I don't do custom work or alterations, sorry! Also, please do read my shop policies/shipping info in full BEFORE you purchase (click on "policies" on my main shop page). Be sure to look at all of the numerous photos of this hat that I have posted on my Facebook page---many more views than I can show here... All hat shipping is BOXED and trackable Priority Mail including overseas.
