This capeline is simply divine! It has an abundance of detail, and most amazingly, has been completely handwoven. The time and skill to make this beauty is immense, and it's intricate weave means it will look fantastic blocked into a simple shape.  

Dating to the 1950s/60s, this capeline is made from seagrass and a flat straw that has a twist detail running diagonally around the hat body. 

Capeline Measures:
Flat measurement from crown tip to brim: 10-11" (25-27cm)

Brim width from side crown to brim edge: 9cm (3.5 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 fitted hats.
