1940's Beret Glamour

I have entered a competition with this little hat and although there was no time for research and ordering of perfect materials I managed to select enough from the workroom to produce this hat. Heres Lucy of Lucy and the Caterpillar fame modeling my vintage inspired 1940's beret.
A hand rolled organza bow has been stitched in silver thread which is secured with a vintage diamante buckle,then the fine silver feather sweeps from behind. The corded lace motif I hand cut from a piece of bridal fabric and stiffened, then I have sewn a wire spine to be able to lift and twist it into position. Lastly some lighter navy organza ribbon was added to the spine.
Lined in navy silk and worn with a hat elastic it should be the type of hat a lady wears every day.! A big thank you to Shelly of Toast who yet again took these terrific photos.
