Invite your dark side to come out and play in this gorgeous Victorian Gothic witch hat. It’s made from an adorably shaped pattern, with a slightly curved pointed top, and a swooping wired brim. I made this hat myself from silver damask fabric and stiff cotton twill. The feathers are large and gloriously over the top – a bouquet of peacock, duck, and pheasant. Two black satin roses and a large mum hand-painted with glitter glue adorns the front.
This hat is not full size – it’s similar in size to my shaped wool hats. It is designed to perch on one side of the head, Victorian style. Please see the last two photos to see how it looks worn!
Because this is a tilt hat, and it does not sit all the way on the head, it is one size fits all. It attaches to the head with an elastic strap. The strap is black, so it won’t be noticeable in most hair colors. You can also pin this hat to the head with bobby pins, or a hat pin with an updo.
Would you like to also own the matching gown? It’s size medium, and posted for sale here.
This hat is 100% one-of-a-kind! I do, however, have plans to make more of these (a full size version of the pattern with a curly crown.) The regular price listed here reflects the future price of the full size version of this hat.
