This is a gorgeous silk velvet beret style cocktail hat with a parisisal and crinoline swirl. I have finished it with a sophisticated veil. It is blocked on a covered buckram base (a is a good firm base) wired around the edge and lined with bright pink silk). It is attached with elastic, have always found this the easiest way to wear a hat and it is comfortable for hours of wear (I find cocktail hats on hair bands are uncomfortable after a while, but if it is your preference just message me and I can swap this over).
