Green Velvet 1940s Halo

Description

A halo and crown hat, covered in a deep green silk velvet. Decorated with true vintage gold decoration and beading. Lined in non-shiny black satin. Attaches to the head with crisp veiling ribbon.

Design Inspiration

This is a recreation of a true vintage hat I bought at a vintage fair. The original was in a very bad condition and not wearable. I wanted to see what this had would have looked like in its hey-day.
