Blocked felt cocktail hat with velvet flowers on a bound wire stem. I added millinery elastic and stitched the flowers on – they’re quite heavy but the felt has two blocked ridges on the crown, the flowers sat in the lower ridge quite nicely. Couch-stitched at intervals on the bound wire stem.
Made for a friend’s wedding, worn with Butterick 5209 1947 dress in black bird and branch cotton print.
