Sinamay & Plaited Raffia Capeline / Hat Base
Made from sinamay and plaited raffia braid, this capeline straddles the line into hat base land as it has a sinamay bias sewn into the crown so could really just be popped on and worn straight away!
Since the fitted sinamay strip is on the bias you could most certainly take it up or down to fit a custom size by blocking it out and adding a fitted petersham ribbon. As is this hat will fit around a 21-22" head with ease.
Brim width from side crown to brim edge: Between 13cm (5.1 inches)
*Please note that this is not quite a finished hat but the 'body' to make one from scratch.*
Petershams Guide to hat bodies:
Cone: This is the perfect size for most fascinators and for blocking out hat crowns.
Flares: This is the size inbetween a cone and a capeline, so good for hats with smaller brims or larger fascinators.
Capelines: This is the largest hat body, great for wide brimmed hats.
