For The Love Of Bacchus ~ neo-victorian steampunk mini top hat
I called this hat For The Love Of Bacchus because the plum coloured fabric reminded of a nice glass of shiraz.
This one of a kind hat and matching hatbox are handmade by me completely from scratch using patterns I designed myself. This is NOT a fabric covered doll's hat. I cut and sew each hat by hand.
It is covered, inside and out, with a nicely patterned plum satin. Clouds of plum tulle cover the brim and wrap around and over the slanted crown. A nice deep plum gem holds the tulle in place on top of the crown.
A rhinestone accented rose and a lace-trimmed vintage watch face decorate the front of the hat. A lovely flourish of lace and a spray of feathers complete the back of this luscious confection.
This tiny topper is meant to be perched upon one's head. There is a comb sewn under the brim that you can use to slide into your hair and there is also a standard milliner's elastic as well. After slipping the elastic under your hair, just slide the comb into place to keep your hat perfectly perched upon your head. Bobby pins may be used across the elastic for extra security.
Brim (front to back & side to side) 5-1/4" (13.3cm)
Crown (at it's highest point) 4" (10cm)
The tulle, lace and feathers go past the measurements of the hat itself.
8-3/4" (22cm) diameter
7" (17.8cm) tall
The cherries on top of the hatbox add another inch (2.54cm) to the height.
Thanks for taking a look. Have a great day!
