1930's Silk Beret


Yesterday I finished this lovely little silk beret trimmed with veiling and semi precious beads. It's for a wedding next Saturday and the reception will be held at a very beautiful old tearooms called Betty's in Harrogate North Yorkshire.
The lady has a vintage style deep emerald dress and shoes in the same colour as the hat.
My vintage hat block was used to create the shape as I had sandwiched two pieces of raw silk using buckram as the medium to hold them together. After removing it from the block I gently steamed the silk back on itself then added a hat elastic, binding and the trim.Voila! one silk beret ready to wear.
