My customer Vera Keohane, from Kinsale was the inspiration for the name of this hat.
This stunning headpiece was especially designed to match her gorgeous “Beatrice” pencil dress from Phoenix V.
This is the “Vera” Hat.
A medium, hand blocked buckram smartie cap base, covered with nude Italian leatherette and embellished with a beautiful bouquet of purple feathers and purple horse hair at the back to give it a bit of height.
It is also decorated with a medium swirl covered with purple fabric from the dress and finished with hand sewn pearls, following the pattern and style of the dress’s neckline.
This gorgeous headpiece is completely hand sewn, lined with purple taffeta and is worn on a millinery elastic.
