BRUGES - Periwinkle Blue Percher Disc
Bruges is one of my absolute favorite cities so of course I had to make a hat inspired by its charm - and the ladies sitting in sunny doorways making their exquisite lace.
I hand blocked this elegant hat in a gorgeous periwinkle sinamay with light cream trim. Its a lovely curvaceous shape that sits very happily on.
It features a handmade silk flower - I make them using a traditional French technique that uses hot irons to shape the natural silk and use crystal for the stamen.
Along with a sinamay flourish and some lace 'leaves' for a charming finishing touch (I didn't make the lace - I haven't tried that yet! ). It also has a lively sinamay bow at the back.
It measures 10" across and has a matching 1" wide satin covered headband (let me know if you would prefer a hair elastic instead) and can be worn either side of the head or centrally.
As with all of my pieces I can make this in other colors.
*As this is handmade it may vary a little from the photograph, this makes it unique - just like you!
Thank you for considering one of my headpieces for your special occasion!
Each one is meticulously handmade - and I loved making it! I hope the care and passion shows in every piece I make:)
