Vintage Hand Embroidered Straw Capeline - Floral
The most adorable capeline we have ever seen has just landed and we don't expect them to last very long. Grab one (or five!) whilst you can!
Made from flat stitched straw, each capeline has been hand embroidered with adorable flowers and leaves in vibrant colours that adorn one side. Whilst the pattern is roughly the same for each capeline each one is totally unique and has it's own little personality. We love them all.
It's already been semi-blocked into a sweet rounded shape and has a finished edge, so all you need to do is add a head ribbon and you're done. You could of course change the shape of it if you like. But why mess with perfection?
Dating to the 1960s/70s, this capeline is in excellent condition and would make the most perfect gift for a floral fanatic.
Flat measurement from crown tip to brim: 27.9cm (11 inches)
Brim width from side crown to brim edge: 10cm (3.9 inches)
*Please note that this is not 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 in between 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.
