The detail work and overall professionalism in making this creation! You can see the time it took and the stitching and we have a poor vocabulary to express how grand and beautiful it is. Thank you.

This was one trim that I tested on this sinamay straw hat. It's beautiful but didn't quite make the cut. Click through to buy the final (even better) version!
This custom hat went for a walk in Rocky Mountain National Park. It's available as a made-to-order style in my shop.
A look behind the scenes at the work that went into creating this elegant hat! It's now fabulously finished and in the shop. blue_heart

About

One-of-a-kind hats for vintage-inspired everyday wear

Love of theatre, costume, hats and vintage fashions brought me to millinery — and everything just clicked.

With a background as a makeup artist and graphic designer, I bring a love of color, knowledge of color theory and principles of shape and proportion to my work. Add in passion for historical fashions (especially hats) and a love of embroidery, beading and other hand-done work. The result: Silverhill Creative Millinery.

Now that a hat is not a required piece of clothing, the great joy of fashion hats is that they have no reason for existing other than to be beautiful and add a dash of fun to everyday life or be the perfect icing on the cake for a special event. Enjoy your hat!

The majority of my hats can easily be worn with jeans and a t-shirt or sweater, so don't fret that you "don't have anywhere" to wear a hat. Wear a hat out for drinks or even to the grocery store. I do!

I take great pride in making every hat in my shop by hand. I use traditional, couture millinery techniques to create each hat. Highest quality felts and straws are shaped by hand over wooden hat blocks. Beading and embroidery are all hand-stiched. Trims are sewn on by hand. No glue is ever used.

Last updated on February 29, 2016
My goal is to make hats that are wearable enough for every day but still fun to wear and one-of-a-kind pieces. (Why wear the same hats everyone else is wearing?) I am passionate about millinery and put hours of time and care into each hat I make.

Shipping

♦ U.S. ♦
Domestic shipping is via USPS Priority Mail (or, on occasion, First Class mail). You will be notified and sent a tracking number as soon as the item ships.

If you need signature confirmation, please indicate that in your order notes.

If you would like overnight shipping or FedEx or UPS delivery, please contact me before purchase so I can calculate the rates for you.

Local customers in Vermont are welcome to arrange for pick-up or drop-off to avoid shipping fees altogether.


♦ INTERNATIONAL ♦
International orders are sent via USPS First Class International or USPS Priority Mail International.

If you want Express USPS shipping or a different carrier (FedEx, UPS, DHL), please contact me before purchase, so I can calculate the rates for you. Note that these can be quite expensive.

International customers are responsible for any duties or import fees they may incur (VAT, tariffs, broker's fees, duty, customs fees, etc.) in their country.

Customs:
Please take a moment before ordering to check what you are allowed to import into your own country.

Customs can cause delivery delays. Every country is different, and I have no control over whether customs holds, opens or delays packages.
Refunds and Exchanges
I want you to be happy with your hat. Therefore, I do accept returns under these guidelines:
1. Any items must be returned in brand-new condition.
2. If you wish to return an item, you must notify me immediately
after receiving your package (within 48 hours). Do this through e-mail or Etsy. The item must then be shipped back within 2 business days after that.
3. I will refund the sale price after I receive the return package. Regretfully, I cannot refund shipping costs unless the fault was mine (i.e. wrong item, etc.).

Gift Certificates are not eligible for returns or refunds.
Additional policies and FAQs
FIT:
Please read each description for appropriate head-size. Most hats are sized for average women's head sizes (21.5"-22.5"); some are one-size-fits-all.

To measure your head, wrap a tape measure around the widest part of your head — parallel to the floor, around your forehead, above your ears and around the bump at the back of your skull.

In some cases, hats can be resized to fit a smaller or larger head size than listed. Please ask.

CUSTOM ORDERS:
I am happy to create a custom order for you! Delivery time is estimated at 3-4 weeks for custom hats, but it may be shorter. Exact cost and time frame depends on the details of what you want.

WHOLESALE:
Please e-mail me at info [!at] silverhillcreative.com if you would like to carry my hats in your bricks and mortar shop.
