Hats, hats, hats!

I’ve got hats on the brain (ha!) at the moment. I got this wonderful book The Modern Girl’s Guide to Hatmaking by Mary Jane Baxter and with some time of work next week it seems like the perfect time to give hat making a go! If there are any hobby hat makers out there, tips would be greatly appreciated.


I have also just added a collection of vintage hats to our Etsy shop Satiable Fashion  which has been giving me lots of inspiration. I’ve had the cheeky try on to see which styles suit me (no photos of this are included!) and just handling different styles of hat gives a better idea of how they’re formed.

I thought I’d share some photos of the lovely, vintage hats I’ve been lucky enough to get my hands on and add to Etsy.

These first two are vintage Kangol hats from the 1960’s. I was thinking of making a fur hat like the first but a bit longer, like a Russian hat. How cute is the pretty in pink Hat too?!



This gorgeous spotted leopard print hat is by Frederick Fox who was a milliner to Queen Elizabeth II as well as other members of the royal family – You can just tell it has a regal air to it!



I love the turban twist to this hat, it’s so unique and truly fabulous.


Thinking about it, these hats are all very Downton Abbey – Maybe it’s the start of the new series that’s got me thinking of hats! I hope you like them as much as I do, have a great week!

  1. My grandmother had a hat exactly like the pink one! I remember it particularly well as she wore it throughout a long journey car journey up to Aberdeenshire and I was sitting right behind her!
