This is a rare vintage wooden hat block from the early 1940's that I used in making this beautiful hat. The process takes steam, days and love. I would love to make one for you. Let's talk about the hat of your dreams. My hat blocks are not for sale.
What a hat block! This is a Bee-hive beret from the early 1940's and one of the blocks I love to work with. It's a show stopper, for sure. I used it to make this long hair angora beret. I would love to make one just for you! My blocks are not for sale.
This is an early 1940's wooden globe hat block. It is a puzzle block, which means it is made of several pieces. I used it to make this hat and would love to make one for you. The block is not for sale.

About

Each hat I create has a story to tell.......What do you want your story to be?

My inspiration comes from the graphic design of the Art Deco period from 1920 to 1940 and the golden years of Hollywood. Each millinery creation starts as a concept built on research from that time period.

I have a vast vintage millinery hat block museum and hat pattern collection that date from the late 1800's to the 1950s. My resources are one of a kind.

I make all the hats completely by hand with the best materials available, using vintage sewing machines that are well over 100 years old and antique millinery tools that are 150- 175 years old. I use few electrical devices in my work.

The client is involved in the design process, as it is their vision that directs me.

I can design Art Deco inspired fashion accessories to compliment the hats. Let's talk about what you want.

Please stop in often, as I am always working on something new!

Welcome to Art Deco Millinery!

To determine hat size:

1.Place a flexible tape measure around the circumference of your head, 1 inch above your eyebrows and around the widest part of your head.
2. Measure the circumference at least twice to be sure that you are getting an accurate measurement
3. Add ½ inch and this will be your hat size.

Fifty % of the cost will be paid at the time of placing the order and the balance will be paid at completion of the work. All custom orders are final.
