Burgundy Bow Pill Box – Autumn Winter 2012

Next up is this gorgeous velvet pill box.

This hat is a large pill box hat and is worn quite far back on the head.  It is made with a luscious burgundy velvet and a soft pink chiffon band.  I think this is such an elegant style & the placing of the hat was inspired by one of the most iconic ladies of the last century, Jackie O.  You can read all about her style and hats here.

When I first made this hat, I had the shape and size of the base made; I knew I wanted it covered in a sumptious velvet but I had no idea what colour…..and then I found this burgundy material and I was sold.

The soft pink chiffon works so well with it as it is a complete contrast to the heavy and dark velvet.  This is now sold…..in fact, you can sometimes see me wearing this in my studio 🙂 I just couldn’t let this one go!
