Blue White Upsweep Hat is your ultimate and delightful spring time hat perfect for so many events and occasions. In this particular hat Wendy has created a gorgeous Upbrim in a white mesh fabric decorated with hand dyed goose feathers that have been gathered together to form the blue and white flowers you see. The centre of the feather flowers are decorated with pearls and crystal beads. There are flowers on the underside of the brim as well so from any angle you see these gorgeous feather flowers.White Pertersham trim around the edges complete this lovely piece.
This is definitely a hat, it is not a fascinator. When you need to be seen wearing a hat but you want to avoid the shade effect of a brim the “Upbrim” is a perfect solution. The Upbrim does what it says, the brim curves upward rather than straight out or down. In this case Wendy has sculptured the Upbrim so that it sits on the side of the head and creates a beautiful line that takes the eye up. In this way you create the illusion of height. It is essential to wear this hat on the side at an angle.
This Upbrim can sit on your head as a Percher style and will stay in place by the use of combs and elastic. Alternatively Wendy will sew it on to a wide comfortable and easy to wear headband. It is up to you and what suits you best.
Absolutely perfect for the Spring Racing season or for a wedding guest. Certainly a Mother of the Bride would look stunning and elegant in this style of upbrim hat matching a an outfit in blues and whites. It would be the perfect offset to a bride all dress in white.
Blue White Upsweep Hat is 100% hand made in Australia by Wendy in her Melbourne studio.
