Edwardian style

Welcome to all those of you who have signed up recently to my blog. I really appreciate you taking the time to look at my work and love to read the comments that you leave! Feel free to make suggestions of what you would like to see more of.

This is the latest addition to my 'Premier' millinery collection

Many years ago I was given a collection of silk pieces that had been used by my great uncle in his work. They are beautiful pieces and I keep them for my Premier collection and special orders.

For this hat I chose a heavy cream silk with tiny scrolled designs. A band of matching silk charmeuse has been draped around the rounded crown.

 The underside of the curled brim has been faced with delicate cream habotai silk which I hand-ruched to give texture.
 I love the mix of autumnal colours with the cream and each of these silk flowers has been handmade by me using traditional millinery methods. The curled quill comes from a selection brought from a feather farm in Ireland.
 .And as always the interior is lined and finished as you would expect, with the Miss Amelia label.

This little piece is 12th scale and can be worn by a doll or displayed in your miniature scene.

Hope you like it! :)

Precioso¡¡¡ Hay veces que me gustaría que los sombreros siguieran siendo parte necesaria de nuestro vestuario (solo a veces;)
