Orange Braid Bow Hat is a delightful and dainty feminine piece of millinery. Here Wendy has used vintage racello orange braid that she has sewn together into a caplet style hat. Attached at the back is the same vintage racello braid sewn together and tied in a bow. Under that there is a double bow of white crinoline.
Such a sweet and dainty piece of headwear. The caplet style of hat sits over your head. There is deliberately no adornment above the head. From the back and side the bows of orange and white stand out. This is a hat designed to match an outfit where the wearer wants an understated piece of millinery that matches to their outfit.
The racello braid and crinoline are so light you will not even be aware you are wearing this. A caplet style hat is so comfortable to wear. A comb and elastic underneath will help ensure this hat secures snuggly to your hair. You could wear your hair in a French bun or ideally with your hair free flowing as most ladies prefer these days.
As noted this is a hat to match an outfit. The orange white combination would go with so many outfits. And such an elegant look for the races this season at the Spring Melbourne Cup carnival. It could also be an elegant wedding guest hat.
Orange Braid Bow Hat was 100% hand made by Wendy in her Melbourne based studio. It is a one off that will not be repeated.
