Item No. 1025
fitted felt cloche hat for 16" fashion dolls
A double layer of felt is steam molded over a wooden hat block to
get the classic rounded top. The turned up brim is trimmed
with a rhinestone 'pin' and has a self fabric bow at the center back.
These iconic hats, often termed "flapper hats" were popularized
due to the short slicked down hair styles of the 1920's.
The cloche hat perfectly emphasized this new clipped hairstyle
that stood as a symbol of feminine independence.
Adding embellishments to your cloche was also trendy. Bows,
lace doilies, glittery beads, brooches and pins, and feathers were
all popular. Some of these additions were a language of secret
meaning. For example, a big flashy bow meant the lady was available
and looking, while a tightly knotted ribbon meant she was off the market.
