My hats are made of the best velour felt (VF) and
wool (WF) and are one of a kind. They are hand blocked and machine blocked
as per my orders which makes them unique.
My trims are hand made as are the signature hat pins which
are for decorative purposes. I have attempted to describe the colors. However, after
photography and transfer to the computer colors can vary.
This Fallís collection features beautiful pastels,
pink, blue, mint green and yellow trimmed with an array of exotic feathers and rhinestones!
Anytime you are not sure of matching a color, remember black or white goes
with all colors.
African American females have always worn what some might call church hats or hats for black women. The styles vary, beginning with small dainty bridal hats, cocktail hats, head bands, first communion veils, large vintage hats, jaunty casual hats, flower and jewel bedecked high fashion hats, which are considered custom millinery and one of a kind designs. Not only in the African American culture, are ladies church hats worn on many occasions. Some of these occasions are The Red Hat Society, Kentucky Derby, Luncheons, High Tea, special religious services and any occasion when a woman just wants to feel special and different.

My sewing lessons began at the neighborhood community
center when I was in the third grade (My dolls were fashionable) and continued throughout
high school. Sewing and millinery were my hobbies. I loved fashion and I knew the
crowning touch to an outfit was the hat.
I was especially intrigued with the fashions
of the 20's and 30's. As you can see from these pictures I descended from a long
line of fashion mavens. I am proud to be the custodian of these historic family
photos dating back to the 1890's.

sixties and later took a second course in the seventies. I bought and read many
books on millinery and perfected my skills. As a result of my hobbies, I traveled
