Channel your inner 1940's film diva in this fabulous turban!
I adore the sophisticated styles of the 1940's and am thrilled to see this retro style coming back into fashion! This is a millinery turban, meaning that it is actually a completed hat and you need not ever worry about tying and retying it yourself.
A millinery turban is totally different from a turban or head wrap made from a single layer of machine-stitched stretchy fabric. A millinery turban starts with a net foundation material blocked onto a hat block. Onto this foundation, I draped, tucked, and hand-stitched a length of black and gray striped taffeta with tiny invisible stitches to secure it to the foundation. I tied the ends into a large, asymmetrical bow in front and stitched this into place, too. And finally, I lined the turban inside with--surprise!--a gorgeous magenta silk dupioni. It is lightweight, elegant, and stylish, and won't make you too hot.
You can easily tuck in flowers or a feather or even pin on a brooch to customize the turban and make it coordinate with whatever outfit you're wearing. Having been blocked on a 23-inch hat block, it will best fit a 23-inch head which is a women's size large, so do let me know if you have questions about sizing or how to measure your head.

I'm so glad you asked! Avoid wearing a straw hat in wet weather because it will quickly lose its shape in the rain. You may also find that some dyed straws' colors will run when wet.
Avoid getting fabric trims like silk flowers, ribbon ornaments and veils wet as these can still look droopy even after they dry again.
If a felt hat becomes wet, stuff it loosely with tissue before allowing it to dry. If your felt looks dull or dusty, you can use a bristle brush to brush up the nap again.
To store, stuff your hat loosely with tissue paper to hold its shape, and put it in its hat box away from dust and sunlight. Never hang a hat or keep it on a stand or its shape could become distorted over time.
