That's right! I've broken into haberdashery - the old business of making men's hats - and millinery - ditto, for ladies - and that means my talents are yours to hire! Each hat is handcrafted individually, formed out of buckram and millinery wire, and then covered in fabric - this made-from-scratch technique means you can LITERALLY have a hat with any decoration you could possibly conceive. This custom order is for small top hats that will be shipped with a headband for adjustable wear

This 'purchase' is only a down payment for supplies. We will continuously communicate over the production of the hat until it's to your liking, and then I will post a second, reserved item up with which you'll pay the rest of your hat (which will vary depending on difficulty or complication, but will be in the $35+ range).

YES, I am making these by hand. Sewing by hand. Forming by hand. Hatmaking is a very painful, very tedious, detailed craft, and is likewise rather expensive. But this will be a REAL hat, not a plastic piece of junk like you'll find at Halloween stores. These hats are made out of authentic, professional supplies, and the quality you receive will be more than worth the time and money that you'll invest into a one-of-a-kind piece that you can rest assured, NO ONE else has.

In your purchase, please state which of the three shapes you'd like (straight, square edge; curved, flared edge) and your basic concept - colour, pattern, etc. By default, your hat will either be a monochromatic wrap with a patterned ribbon, a patterned wrap with a monochromatic ribbon, or wrapped hat with a feather or pinned accessory on the side. I personally like to show my stitches, and will whipstitch around edges in a contrasting colour - if you don't want to see stitches, please specify. You can opt to have the brim open (meaning you can see inside the hat - useful if you want to hide things in it), or closed (which means the top of the hat sits on the brim, and you can't). The lining will by default be a monochromatic fabric similar to the hat's overall pattern. If you'd like to add additional accessories - such as a wire veil, trim, detailed pins, etc. - mention that as well.

I'm looking forward to making you a one-of-a-kind, beautiful hat!
