    Allison is truly an artist. Her medium is fabric, thread and imagination. I was creating a costume that required a motarboard cap and after some lengthy research, I knew I would need to have one made. I made some notes and Allison created a mock up to review before construction. I requested a few changes and after approving another mockup, she created the perfect cap! Her commutation is detailed and thorough. We are going to start another project shortly. If you need a hat... You can't beat Frontier. Thank you, Allison!

    I am so glad that I found Allison when I was looking for a custom bonnet to wear to the Dickens Fair! She is so creative and talented! There are so many gorgeous little details on my bonnet and it is beautifully made. I really enjoyed watching it come to life and looked forward to all the photos she sent me along the way! Allison was a joy to work with and made the process so much fun. I can't wait to wear it!!

About

Hats. History. Handcrafted.

Hats were an instant passion upon learning the craft of millinery in a theatrical costuming course. Ever since then, I haven't been able to keep hats off my mind (or my head!).

The most beautiful element of millinery, for me, is the history of the craft, and I keep the past close to heart while designing for the modern day. I use the same tools and techniques passed down from decades of artisans, while innovating a few new ones of my own. An eye for detail means that each hat I create is beautifully constructed and impeccably finished. The majority of my creations are one of a kind, as I combine new materials with unique and historic finds from flea markets, thrift stores, and attics all over the world. By incorporating old elements into new designs I help the past to live again, and create unique pieces with both a storied history and a bright future.

I am always happy to create unique custom pieces for clients looking for the perfect accessory. If you have an idea for a great hat, I'd love to bring it to life!

Payment
METHODS: I accept payment through Etsy Direct Checkout and PayPal.

TAX: Colorado Residents: Please note that sales tax will automatically be added to your order at checkout. As a resident of Broomfield I collect Colorado state, Broomfield city and county, RTD and CD sales taxes where applicable. I do my best to keep these rates accurate, but do let me know if you think I charged you incorrectly.

RESERVES: Payment is due immediately upon purchase. If you are interested in an item but can't make payment right away, convo me and I can put a temporary reserve on the listing you'd like to purchase until you're ready.

CANCELLATIONS: If you wish to cancel an order, you must contact me with a request to do so. Please let me know within 12 hours of purchasing if you need to cancel or change your order. I cannot cancel orders that have already shipped.
Shipping
CARRIER: I ship via USPS. In-stock orders will ship within one to three days of receiving full payment. Custom made items will ship when completed and approved. If payment is received on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, your item will most likely ship on the following Monday. Contact me before purchasing if you require a different delivery service or need rush shipping!

TRACKING AND INSURANCE: Parcel tracking is included with the shipping for each purchase. You will receive a shipping confirmation email with your tracking number once the item has been shipped. Domestic orders will be insured through a third party insurer. To add signature confirmation or other services, please send me a message before completing your purchase for an adjusted shipping rate. Please note that tracking and insurance are not always available for international orders.

INTERNATIONAL: I currently ship mainly to the United States, but am willing to ship internationally as well! If you are an international buyer interested in purchasing from my shop, please send me a message so I may calculate a shipping quote for you. Buyers are responsible for knowing their import and customs laws concerning banned and restricted materials. International customers should also note that they are responsible for any further customs fees, VAT, or delivery charges due upon receipt. These are not included in the item price or shipping fees and are the sole responsibility of the buyer.
Additional policies and FAQs
CUSTOM WORK IS AVAILABLE! I would be more than happy to create a custom item for you. Just contact me and we can start brainstorming!

Custom orders must be paid for in full before I begin work on the project. Once the details of the custom order have been determined, I will create a reserved listing which must be purchased and paid for in order for me to begin work. Partial deposits and payment plans can be discussed if needed.

My Shop Policies apply to all orders, including custom orders. Please expect custom orders to take some extra time. Time required for custom orders, as well as any other order-specific terms, will be determined in our messages together.

HAT SIZE: Measuring for your hat size is easy! Wrap a measuring tape comfortably around the widest circumference of your head (across the forehead, widest part of the back of the head, and just above the ears) and note the measurement. An extra set of hands can be helpful for this, if you can find a friend to assist! Keep your head level, facing straight ahead, and keep the tape parallel to the floor. The tape should be snug, but not too tight - basically, it should feel just as you'd want the fit of the hat to feel on your head! I can work in both standard and metric units, whichever is convenient for you.

For costume hats, please consider if you plan to wear a wig with your hat! Wigs increase head size. My standard allowance for wigs is an additional 1" to head size, but if you require a different allowance please let me know!

Please contact me if you have any further questions on measuring for hat size, I'd love to ensure as best a fit as possible for you!

If you have a question concerning anything I have not addressed here in these Policies, or a question about any item listed in my store, please don't hesitate to contact me! I am absolutely willing to work with you to create the perfect piece for you and to address any concerns before, during, or after you order!

- Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.

Frequently asked questions
What size are your hats?

Most of my hats are made to fit specific sizes, and are NOT 'one-size'! Each hat has its particular sizing and fit information listed in its description. So please be sure to check the listing information and measure your size to ensure your fit before your purchase!

How do I measure my hat size?

HAT SIZE: Measuring for your hat size is easy! Wrap a measuring tape comfortably around the widest circumference of your head (across the forehead, widest part of the back of the head, and just above the ears) and note the measurement.
