Once you have seen something you like, I make the cloche based on your head size.
The next step is viewing buckles to go with your hat. I usually pin them on so you can see the buckle in relation to the hat.
Once you've decided on a buckle I finish up the hat and send it out to you via 3 day priority mail here in the US. I also ship to Canada and Internationally.
I spend a great deal of time and care on each hat. I use only high quality materials, including tailor's interfacing to ensure a good shape to the hat. I top stitch all seams for further reinforcement. I hand sew part of each lining, the band and the interior label. I have many years of experience in making hats and want each hat to last a lifetime.
To measure your head: Using a soft tape measure go around head about 1" above eyebrows in front and include the largest part of the back of head.
PLEASE ALLOW 3 weeks from payment for shipping.
Please note that the photos in the listing are hats I have made in the past.
