Black Side Sitting Hat is a delightful and elegant Winter hat. This side sitting hat is made from pure black silk and black and white silk in a hounds tooth pattern. Wendy has tied the two fabrics to create a rope effect around the hat and finished it off with a gorgeous bow. The bow sits at the top of the hat.
This hat echoes the elegance of a by gone era, the 1930s and 1940s. Its almost something you’d expect Lois Lane to wear but with a contemporary twist. It is a percher style, meaning it simply sits on your head. In this case it is designed to sit on the side of your head to create a lovely angle. There is a black elastic that wraps under your hair to hold it all in place.
Ideally this is a Winter style hat but it would certainly not look out of place on Derby Day during the Melbourne Cup Carnival. Needless to say a hat like this could be used for so many occasions and events. It would match so many styles of outfits.
Black Side Sitting Hat is 100% hand made by Wendy in her Melbourne studio. It is a unique piece that will not be copied. So you can be assured it will be your special hat not to be seen elsewhere.
If you love this style of percher side sitting hat but were perhaps after something in a different colour or with different applique and/or embellishment then contact Wendy directly. There are so many possible ways to use this style and shape of hat. So talk to Wendy about what you have in mind and she would be happy to create your perfect piece to match whatever outfit or occasion you have in mind.
