City Girl Hats grew from my love of, well, hats. Training in London as a professional couture milliner, I made hats for Ascot, a royal wedding, runway shows and other events using traditional handcrafted methods and materials. My collection of more than 250 vintage hats and affection for vintage clothing and accessories are major design influences. My hats often include vintage flowers, ribbon, or veiling that started life on a different hat. “Baby, it is cold outside…” so wear something with some style and color. Most hats are one or few of a kind as I often obtain small quantities of ribbon, yarn and fabric from swaps, church sales, thrift stores, vintage textile shows and other venues from my…

My renewed interest in crochet came from my move to the cold MidWest where a hat is a necessity in the winter. The texture and color of yarns is wonderful as is creating fabric from a piece of string. My grandmother taught me to crochet when I was a child. A gift of a little blue sewing machine led to making doll clothes and I have been making all kinds of things ever since.

Press: As seen in Victoria Magazine, Women’s Wear Daily, Accessories, Dallas Morning News, Today’s Dallas Woman, and a Visa card commercial for the Kentucky Derby.

Hat sizes: The average size for a woman’s hat is about 22.5 inches but it very much depends on hairstyle and head shapes. Measure with a tape measure (no, not a ruler) just above the eyebrows. If a hat varies from the range, it will be noted in the item listing. Please measure as hats are not returnable.

Shipping via USPS to US addresses only, no international shipping. Request insurance, if desired, for an extra fee. We are not responsible once packages are in the care of the post office.

Trademarks, registration marks, and names (such as yarn colors) used are the sole property of their legal owners and all rights are respected.

Cleaning and care: Most crocheted and fleece items can take a spot cleaning or a run around the dryer to freshen. Machine washing is not suggested.

All items from a smoke-free environment.
