                                                          Edwardian/"Titanic" Hats 
  

"The Rose" is created from a pattern published in 1906. The original is the photo gallery (click the photo to go to the gallery.)  Completely handmade, this hat has a net and wire base with the brim covered in vintage straw braid.  The crown is decorated with a length of pink taffeta with a pink taffeta bow, my handmade silk roses and  cotton leaves and a swath of white cotton net.  The underside of the brim is covered with eggshell cotton lace.                                                                                                                          

"The Rose" is intended to sit atop the head, not down on the head like modern hats.  Hat pins are required to keep this hat in place.  One vintage button-type white hat pin is included.  More are available here.

This style is perfect for your Edwardian wedding or for ladies who do tea and want to stand out from the rank and file. Please click on the photo for additional images, including the original on which it is based.

"The Rose" as shown, $300.  This style can be custom made for you in other colors.

 

"La Violette" is the second in my series of hats based on original 1906 patterns. All hand-crafted, the hat body is a fancy woven straw over a wire frame. The outer brim is swathed in vintage English tulle with a festoon of baby blue silk taffeta and bunches of my handmade cotton and silk violets with cotton velvet leaves.  The underbrim is faced with cotton lace and features another bunch of violets in the back.  The lining is silk taffeta.  One vintage white glass button-head hat pin is included. Additional hat pins can be found in the accessories section of the Mercantile, click here..

This hat longs to be paired with a lovely white cotton lawn lingerie dress for afternoon tea parties in the garden.

"Grace" is fashioned using the same pattern as "La Violette."  The wired black straw body is draped with black silk gauze and decorated with vintage satin striped silk bows, handmade silk roses and a vintage Edwardian compound ostrich plume.  The underbrim is faced with vintage cotton lace.  Grace is suitable for the society matron and cooler weather and can be worn a little farther forward, if desired.  The roses are pinned in place and can be easily changed for a more somber occasion.  One vintage glass button hat pin is included with this elegant hat.  Additional hat pins can be found in the accessories section of the Mercantile, click here..
