Fantastic hat! Someone even thought I was famous when I wore it in New York.

SUCH a gorgeous hat! Because it's a cloche with freeform qualities, I did a little experimenting to find which way it would fit best, and have finally settled upon a great tip-tilted look. I look awesome in my new hat!!! Thank you, Emily.

I am swooning over the beauty of this hat. The materials are so lovely, and the shaping and proportions are stunning; so flattering to the head and face. This is a top hat I can, and will, wear every day. Plus, Emily was such a joy to deal with, and she'll be my go-to milliner from now on. Diolch yn fawr iawn -- thank you very much!

About

I'm cursed with the disease of needing to know how.

I began to study hat making at Lillstreet Art Center in Chicago. I took their class seven times and become utterly addicted to making hats. After my millinery teacher, Eva May, left Lillstreet to start her own studio, I followed her and helped paint the walls and wash the floor. I began selling my hats on my husband’s Etsy site in 2007, and though my husband and I show together as Moe Sew Co, I do have my own Etsy shop for the “millinery division”.

My work is rooted in the past. I use traditional forms– fedora, porkpie, cloche– but my hats are created with the eyes of a modern person looking at the past through rose-colored glasses. I begin by making a single design choice. Following that choice, I am not always in control of the process. The materials I use have their limits and piques. I work to find solutions to the problems they create, finding balance and design lines. I begin by blocking over antique and antique-style wooden blocks and then make each stitch with a needle and thread.

I am a tactile person. I love the feel of fur felt under my fingers and am completely fascinated by the beauty in a single feather. Millinery appeals to the inquisitive aspect of my personality as well. All of my life I have been driven to know how things work, to take things back to their source and to explore the world through art. I love millinery because each and every art form can be applied to my hats. I can use wire crochet, bead embroidery, French silk flower making, ribbon work, and needle felting. There is no end to this, no technique that can’t in some way be applied. That is why I love it so much.

    I believe that it’s ok for a woman to be equally comfortable in a pair of stiletto heels and a pair of Carhartts. I believe that what we wear is our purest form of self-expression. Art belongs on our heads, shoulders and heels as well as our walls.

Shipping
I am very happy to ship overseas. If actual shipping cost, including packing, is less than the original estimate, you will be refunded.

Hats are shipped very carefully and tenderly, and this is reflected in the cost. International shipping is higher yet. I want to make sure that the hat gets to you safe and sound. If actual shipping cost, including packing, is less than the original estimate, you will be refunded.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you are unhappy with your new hat, please let me know, send it back and I will fix it for you. If the hat is (I dare not think it) damaged in transit, I will replace it for you.

I want my customers to be happy, and will do what it takes to make that happen. However I do not do refunds.
Additional policies and FAQs
I appreciate open communication with my clients. You will receive friendly convos from me as we progress, and I love to hear from you.

I am always SO EXCITED to get a custom order. Generally, these hats will require 3-4 weeks to complete (though I try very hard to beat that!).

I'm open to wholesale and consignment.
