A Flapper's How To~ Spice up Your Veiled Cocktail Hat

Bird Cage Veiling~ It's a wonderful way to add more of a vintage feel to any Cocktail Hat, plus also adding a sense of class to your look.

Now, I love veiling, especially Bird Cage Veiling, and I think it brings more of that "Sex Siren" appeal to it's wearer, but I sometimes can't stand it always hanging in front of my face, and having to peer through those diamond shaped holes.

I have a solution~

You may need a couple of pins~

By taking the ends of the veiling, start tucking and rolling the veiling  underneath it's self. Start heading up towards the hat base, still rolling up the veiling. After tucking the veiling under it's self,  place the rolled up veiling, which now looks like a big puff,  and place it as close to where it's attached on the hat, and  spread the veiling around the top of the base. Get the veiling postioned in the way you want it to look, and then pin in place.

It's a great way to get the veiling out of your face and your eyes, but it's also a great way to make you hat look new, and more Avant Garde looking. It's like an instant make over for your Cocktail Hat!
