Fajardo, Puerto ...
The cloche is a style that makes you think of the 1920s and the flappers. It’s very flattering and can be worn by a lot of people. It’s modest enough that you can get away with it easily as casual wear, but with the brim dripping down over the eye, it gives you a coy flirtatious look as well. I made this one with a simple dome shaped block, and the fold in the crown (hard to see in the picture) is done by hand, then pinned while the felt dries on the block. The bow is hand made out of china silk.
