Hats, Headpieces, and Veils

All items on this page are available for immediate sale.

The hats, headpieces, and veils shown on this page are available for immediate purchase, or may be custom ordered in colors other than those shown (subject to material availability). In the case of custom orders, I prefer to see a picture of the intended gown if at all possible so as to be able to create a headpiece that truly looks as if it belongs to the gown.

All items are hand made, one at a time, using the best materials and methods available. Glue is only used where the items cannot be hand stitched to ensure that the decorations are still as lovely and as firmly attached in 25 years as they are on your special day.

Ivory illusion netting covered headband accented with twining "paper" silk flowers and leaves. The cathedral length ivory illusion veil is detachable, and has the same silk flowers and leaves scattered over the bottom third of the veil. Perfect for a spring wedding or a romantic gown!


French hood, mid 1500s
The crescent is covered with burgundy brocade and decorated with hand laid gold threads. Matching burgundy and gold trim is hand sewn at the top and bottom of the crescent, and a line of faux pearl beads is hand sewn onto the edge of the top trim. Faux pearl and gold beads are wired onto the top edge of the crescent. The veil is a semi-circle of burgundy chiffon with a decorative hem in gold thread, and is attached to the crescent. Black rayon ribbon ties. (Clear elastic to replace ribbon ties available upon request.)
