A commissioned hat I finished recently. Inspired by the Atlantis Top Hat, but not the same. :)

It is made with gorgeous silk dupioni in three different colors; teal, blue and green. All of them shimmer wonderfully in the light and add to the under-the-sea effect. 
Among the decorations are real seashells, antique gold netting, rivets, a chain of pearls and brass beads, glitter, pearls, and a medium sized brass octopus that has claimed one of the pearls as his own! 
Because of the seashells, the hat is quite heavy and as per the client's request I attached it to a headband that I also covered in silk. 

I am very happy with how it turned out and I'm sure the client will look fantastic in it!
