One of a kind / ready to ship 'Coretta' - Black and Cream Color contrast and study in balance and texture, sinamay, parasisal, buntal, feathers & quills



Coretta is a beautiful headpiece and marvelous study in color contrast, balance and texture.  The base and small pillbox are made of cream color sinamay, surrounded by a infinity loops of black parasisal and black and cream textured buntal.  The piece is accented with two black ostrich quills and a fabulous 50 feather star spray of black and white naturally striped silver pheasant feathers.  The piece is very balanced and worn on a wide black satin headband.  It is also very lightweight and easy to wear with a lot of different hairstyles. 

This hat is in stock and ready to ship and is a one of kind. 

This hat is $275.  Unfortunately this piece just a little too big for the hat box sizes I have available, so it comes packed in a standard shipping box.  

Here is a link for an oversized hat box that will accommodate this hat if you would like a nice, sturdy box to store your custom hat in:

Returns are sometimes accepted, but only for UNWORN items, if still complete with all tags attached and original packing materials. Items must be returned within 10 days of receipt for refund of the purchase price of the item minus the shipping fees. Shipping fees are non-refundable. Buyer is responsible for return shipping costs, including insurance and tracking.

No exchanges or returns, unless the item is somehow defective or damaged.

I ship most packages via USPS and USPS Priority Mail.  I ship to all US addresses and most International addresses.

Because of new postal rules in the US, I cannot ship larger hats via First Class International Mail. The package size exceeds the maximum length + girth allowed. International customers will have the option of either Priority Mail International (6-10 Business days) OR Express Priority Mail International (3-5 business days).

International customers are responsible for any customs and processing fees levied by a foreign government. Customs may also cause delays in delivery time, so please plan accordingly.  If your purchase is returned to us by the postal service due to unpaid Customs fees, A Pate Designs is not responsible to refund your money or for additional costs to reship the item(s).

I normally ship within 1-3 business days of receiving payment for your "Ready to Ship" and/or "In-stock" purchase.

Made to Order items take 1-4 weeks to complete, depending on the item and depending on the time of year and current order log. Rush orders are sometimes available for an additional fee.  International Racing schedules, such as Kentucky Derby, Royal Ascot, Melbourne Cup, etc. could extend production time by an additional 4 or more weeks depending on the amounts of orders we are processing.  Please allow as much time as possible when ordering custom headpieces around these busier times.

All my couture hat designs are hand-blocked and stitched in my studio using traditional, time honored, millinery techniques.  If you are interested in a custom hat of any kind, please feel free to email me at  Thanks for visiting my shop!
