Bridal Small Button hat, made in ivory silk dupion, available in a range of shades of Ivory and finished with classic birdcage veiling.
A gorgeous finishing touch to your vintage wedding outfit, the small button hat is designed to be worn at the front and slightly to the side, and is an adorable little pillbox shape. It compliments a lot of vintage & retro style wedding gowns and dresses and is also available to custom in a range of options.
This one is made with an silk dupion base and trimmed with ivory honeycomb birdcage veiling in a larger diamond pattern. This style hat is also finished with a lace ivory bow. Please see the attached pics for the pattern of this veiling, as other options are available in the shop.
Attached with elastic which goes underneath the hair at the back, which is available to order in options to match hair colour, in blonde, mid brown or dark for dark brown and black hair. I also can colour match the elastic so if you would like the elastic colour matched to your hot pink pin curls, then no problem, just select custom elastic and drop me a message. There is included in the price.
The small bridal button hat is available to order in ten different shades of ivory & pastel. From traditional shades of ivory to vintage shades such as pale gold and sea foam green, to match vintage dresses & fun pastel colours for more colourful weddings. Most of the ivory shades are all subtle shades of ivory, so sea foam green for example has a subtle slight green tint that is very reminiscent of vintage and period fashion such as the 1940s or art deco era. Bone ivory is ever so slightly grey, magnolia ever so slightly pink, champagne ivory is slightly cream yellow in pigment and Pure White is like A4 paper.
For colour matching before ordering, please see the pics attached and look through the other listings to see examples. You can also find an ivory shade card in the swatch card section for comparing to dresses or taking to fittings before ordering.
**Please be aware with ivory shades it is always difficult to see shade differences on computers and mobile phones and I strongly recommend seeing the fabric colour in the flesh before ordering. FYI the shade cards do also come with a discount code, which takes the cost of the swatch card off the final cost of your hat, so you don't go to any extra expense.
Hats are all made to order from scratch to your custom requirements, so please allow 7-10 days for making & delivery. Hats are also packed with care and sent out in their own custom hat boxes, to protect your hat for the big day and arrive to you in one piece.
These little hats are handmade using a wooden hat block in my little workshop in the English countryside. I make the inside shell or base shape from a traditional millinery material called buckram, before wiring & covering them in silk dupion and then finishing with millinery petersham and lining. All materials are sourced in the Uk sustainably from independent and established bridal and local suppliers.
