Chocolate Dream


Lots of ladies don't want a large brimmed hat or even a hat that covers their hair so a small but distinctive piece is often the answer. Here is chocolate fine straw toque hand blocked and then hand pleated, I pop bull clips onto each pleat to keep them sharp.
The shape would come under 'toque' mostly without a brim and a circle that fits close to the head.
The trim which is fine braided straw has been sewn into a simple bow and a couple of vintage beads added to the center.
A corn yellow silk binding and a wide tooth comb bound in organza ribbon is all that is needed to finish this lovely little hat.
