Vintage 1950's/60's Zig Zag Threaded Crinoline Capeline Hat Body - 11"
Do you remember that amazing hat worn by Elle Fanning at the 2019 Cannes Festival? If you don't, then you should immediately Google it because this capeline is almost an exact match!
They date to around the 1950's/60's (possibly earlier) and are made from a zig zag patterned threaded crin that was spiraled to make a capeline. To shape simply give it a steam and pop onto your hat block of choice.
Flat measurement from crown tip to brim: 28cm (11 inches)
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 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 fitted hats.
