Mad about Hats!
Today's (Oct 17) Vancouver Sun article features hats by The Saucy Milliner, a local milliner was creates couture hats and fascinators for women and recently, children (The Saucy Pups line).
These hats are fur felt hats blocked on new and vintage wood blocks in various shapes and sizes. Everything is hand-sewn and NO gluegun is EVER used for trimming the hats. Lots of hardwork is put in precision cutting and sewing that every owner of a Saucy Milliner hat is sure to have the best atop their head. The same goes for fascinators made of horsehair, sinamay, crin, parisisal, etc. No gluegun. This is what differentiates the Saucy Milliner from other couture milliners based in Vancouver.
Furthermore, for those of you who watch Once Upon A Time, she was the real 'Mad Hatter' who created the Mad Hatter magic portal top hat. If that top hat isn't something you can imagine yourself wearing, you may have liked her Princess Abigail riding hat in S1. ;) Wasn't it beautiful?

I know you will love her creations as much as I do! :)
