How is “hat size” determined?

The Hats will fit head sizes 22-23 inches. Here is how to measure for if a specific size is required. Use a tape measure (or a piece of string that you will have to hold up to a tape measure to determine the length). Place the tape (or string) around your head about 1 cm above your ears, over the center of your forehead and encircling it over the “bump” at the back of the head. If you have any difficulty doing this please contact us by email or telephone. Some of the Hats are worn with hair bands or combs therefore will fit all adults. Specific sizing will be required for children. Fascinators are fitted with head bands and combs. This allows for a snug fit for most clients.

I ask clients to mail samples/swatches of their “outfit” fabric so that I can coordinate/match colors and motifs for their hat/fascinator.
