Lady Eve Millinery Hat Winner

October 26, 2012

We had a record number of entries in our giveaway for the hat of your choice from Lady Eve Millinery, which confirms two things I already knew:

  1. Lady Eve Millinery‘s hats are awesome
  2. There is no such thing as ‘too many hats’

The lucky winner is….drumroll please….

…Mrs Gendy, who chose  the gorgeous Babette Cap Fascinator Hat. Congratulations Mrs Gendy – check your email for a message from me  🙂

It has been a real treat to support a small business with this giveaway. It can be tough starting out on a new business venture so I know all the love you have shown is appreciated 🙂

If you didn’t win, you can console yourself with a $10 discount on any Lady Eve Millinery hat for the next week. To claim the discount, just mention WeSewRetro in the ‘message to seller’ field at checkout. 

Here’s a message from Aimee….

Hello Ladies!

I am deeply touched by your gracious comments about my hats! Every word has brightened my day. Making these hats is an exercise in love of vintage fashion and style. I take great joy in breathing new life into an old block.

I started this endeavor because although vintage hats are still out there…their condition is often poor, the style unsuitable, the fit wrong, etc. Since I also love collecting and sewing from vintage patterns, I thought if any gals could appreciate these hats, it would be the lovely ladies here!

Please do check my shop often. I hat more blocks and styles to add including bridal versions of both the 1940s Olivia and 1950′s Grace. I have also recently come into a wider brim hat that simply screams Casablanca, a sculpted pillbox….am eyeing an upturned cloche block and have a sculpted cloche being replicated.

Every hat form you see can be created in your choice of around 40 different colors of lush velour fur felt… or from high quality parasisal straw. Please feel free to convo me at any time.
