This is a ‘newsboy’ cap with a difference. It has been hand sewn using a 1970’s retro pattern.
The brim is generous but is great to wear. The sectioned part of the hat has a lightweight stiffener bonded to the black and white ‘zigzag’ Mexican cotton poncho fabric. Its like a cotton tapestry fabric.
This gives the hat a little more shape and style so the crown will sit nicely when worn, not flop down on the head. The brim has a firm but flexible inner form so curves nicely to flatter the face.
It is lined with 100% floral pure silk.
A vintage crystal bead is at the front right of the brim and finishes the black velvet tube trim.
This hat design can be made to order. It can be made in winter or even spring weight laces to be a bit different at the races. Pure silks, wool, velvets, floral cottons and velveteen (corduroy) suit this hat construction.
Contact Wendy directly to discuss your order of one of these, in either your own supplied fabric, or something from Wendy’s fabric collection. The brim can be made slightly shorter if required.
Three basic sizes available- small medium and large. This hat is a med-large 58-60 cm
100% Australian made.
