Red & Black Straw Hat
This one of a kind hat has been completely made by me, the teacup milliner. My pieces are designed and made the same way I make my hats, in full millinery fashion. It is made from millinery straw and I wired the edge.
To see how I made this piece, please visit my blog.
My inspiration for this piece is the romantic eras of British history. This cute stylish hat has a narrow steel hair band to wear the shallow crowned hat without fear of losing it in the wind. The band can be hidden in your hairstyle. I was taught to make straw hats when young and on my blog you can see an old video of how this process takes place.
You can now follow me on twitter and facebook and know every time I finish a new piece.
