  • Vintage beaded fabric over white silk pillbox


    This stunning Mini Pillbox or Button Hat  hat will simply make your heart melt when you see it for the first time.

    Beads of different sizes make a stunning design, the beaded fabric is set on white Dupioni silk which covers the stabilizing fabric that has been blocked by hand over wooden blocks in the traditional millinery fashion. It is lined in the same Dupioni silk and stitched by hand. A silver comb sits is in the back of the hat and fastens easily to hair. (may be replaced with small silver band)

    Perfect look for the bride or works great as a cocktail hat. Or simply show the elegant side of you when you pair it with a silk  top and a pair of jeans.

    The Hats and Fascinators on this web page are made by me in my studio outside of Nashville, Tennessee. I use the age old technique of hand blocking the millinery material over wooden blocks. I wire the edge of the brim to maintain the shape and add stability.

    I use high quality products many of which are purchased internationally. I love to make sinamay, felt, and fabric hats. I use silk linings, and silk flowers and dye many of my fabrics myself to maintain color continuity.
