New Colors in the 'Una' Mini Top Hat

For those of you who love a mini, I've created two new color combinations for the 'Una' mini top hat.

It's made with glossy long-napped fur felt polished to a high shine, with a pleated ribbon band, a large bow in back, and hand-curled feathers. These Ringneck Pheasant feathers are overdyed to match the felt, leaving the feathers' natural markings and iridescence still showing through. The front of the brim is draped in a delicate antique silk veiling with a hexagonal pattern and a scalloped lace border. It forms a flattering birdcage veil that falls at just about the tip of the nose. I have a *very* limited supply of this extraordinary and extraordinarily rare veiling in black, navy blue, and chocolate brown (navy and brown versions of the 'Una' are on the way early next year), and when it's gone, it's gone.

Here's the 'Una' in basic black.

And here's the 'Una' in cherry red.

Both of these color combinations are now available for sale in my Etsy shop. It could be made with any other color felt you'd like to see with black, navy, or brown trim and veiling, though- purple, green, charcoal or silver gray, etc. If you would like another felt color just ask.
