French Millinery - Late 19th century autumn designs

 I love rich Autumn colours and having received a wonderful new textured silk recently in shades of chocolate, caramel and dusky pink I decided to put together a small collection of french style millinery in those tones. Silk velvets and brocades drape together beautifully and, as always, I have a weakness for long trailing veils in matching colours. Brims are narrow and upturned and these little hats will perch beautifully on your 12th scale lady's head or look great on display on a tall elegant hatstand.
