Perfect for retro\/vintage style or rockabilly weddings, or for the bride looking for something a little more original, this adorable headpiece is based on a feather pad and will be hand decorated according to your specifications.

We are proud to introduce our newest line of hats with this piece. This style of headpiece is called a cocktail hat or a fascinator. It is sewn to a comb for easy and secure attachment to any hairstyle. All adornments are securely hand-sewn for an elegant and sturdy piece.

The veil of white diamond netting with chenille dots is made in the very popular "birdcage" style. (We can also make the veil in ivory, with or without chenille dots.) It is about chin length, depending on where you position the hat. We use an entire yard of netting, hand-pleated to fit around the headpiece, and folded at the back into a double bow to give you a nice full effect. Many birdcage veils fit too tightly around the head and cling to the eyelashes or create a "helmet" feeling but we use sufficient material to make sure you have a good amount of "poof."

The feather base measures 7 inches long by 5 inches wide. The version pictured here features a pad of white feathers, worn at a jaunty angle across the corner of the forehead. It is adorned with two large fabric flowers, slightly shimmery in material, and a spray of white eyelash feathers.

We can make a custom version for you that uses a different color of feather pad, including ivory. We can also use a white pad and colored flowers or different colors of eyelash feathers. We have a wide variety of flowers in numerous sizes - for instance, we have white orchids, or miniature rosebuds. Other options include ribbons and decorative buttons. See our other listings for ideas. Please let us know your preferences and we can pin together a design especially for you that you can approve BEFORE you order.

Please note that this style of hat does NOT have a detatchable veil. The veil is sewn directly to the feather headpiece.

These hats are created by Joei Reed Custom Millinery. Joei Reed trained in theatrical costume design at Duke University and offers a variety of colors and adornments.

**NOTE FOR BRIDAL HATS** As headpieces are often ordered months in advance of a wedding, we strongly recommend a hat stand to keep your veil straight and neat until your special day. You can easily and inexpensively make a hat stand with a few items from a craft store - see our blog at joeireedhats.livejournal.com for photos and instructions.
