Lattice Weave Sinamay Capeline / Hat Base
This hat base straddles the line between a ready made hat base and capeline as it is just about ready to wear as a hat base, but has the flexibility of a capeline as the inside crown has a bias weave tape with a bit of give to block it out to a custom size. As is this hat will fit around a 21-22" head with ease.
Made from three layers of lattice sinamay, it has a classic blocked dome crown , a bias band around the crown base and bias around the brim edge.
Brim width from side crown to brim edge: Between 11.5cm (4.2 inches)
Natural Sinamay- Undyed, natural sinamay with light and dark natural strands
Navy Blue Sinamay- The outer layers of sinamay are navy with a natural colour sinamay sandwiched in between.
*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.
