Mallory is a classical beret, a perfect foundation hat for any wardrobe. Mallory has three pieces to her construction. Her crown is short measuring 2-1/4” tall all around. Her round top is 12” in diameter, and she has a 1-1/2” external band. Mallory Chocolate Velvet is made of a very dark brown micro velvet, which has a 100% polyester content. This fabric is luxurious and of high quality. She is underlined and interfaced for good body, yet still soft enough to be shaped to your liking. Mallory Chocolate Velvet’s band has a 2-1/2” piece of elastic hidden inside the band. This allows for tapering to the decreased size and slope of the head if the hat is work pulled down. The elastic has nothing to do with sizing. Accurate headsize is key to a good beret fit. Mallory Chocolate Velvet is lined in a brown, satin backed crepe (satin side out), and banded inside. She is trimmed with a removable hat brooch. The brooch has one velvet covered button sitting on a circle of brown tulle with one peackcock feather end all sewn to a circular velvet covered base. You can remove this brooch and add your own, for a different look. Mallory Chocolate Velvet is sized at 22—1/2”.
