Inspired by a vintage pattern from Pearl's collection, our 1960s FLOWER POT HAT is a marvel of minimalist design. What appears to be a simple construction of gathered rectangles is elevated through gentle curves, bias cuts and carefully-planned tucks into one of the last great millinery forms — the iconic "upside down" flower pot, with its face-framing brim and tall crown.

Make your own flattering FLOWER POT HAT from elegant silk, as we have done above. Or try a lightweight cotton, like the pink organdy on American Girl® Kit below — or follow our directions for flatlining lace or other sheer fabrics for the couture-look version on our American Girl Melody below.

And because no vintage outfit is complete without matching jewelry, we've included a selection of easy-to-make iconic pieces.

We've modeled our single strand PEARL CHOKER on an elegantly graduated real pearl necklace. This classic style was worn by midcentury fashion icons like Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly — and of course, Jackie Kennedy. Nothing adds feminine polish to an outfit like a circle of pearls.

For the 2-TIER FAUX PEARL NECKLACE, we went in a different direction — inspired by the fabulous lucite necklaces of the late '50s and '60s.

Here are a few of the vintage lucite necklaces from Pearl's collection — why wear tired old diamonds around your neck when you can wear the Plastic of the Future instead?

Gorgeous, multi-tiered lucite pearl necklaces were produced in huge quantities throughout the 1950s and early '60s. Many were produced in Japan, where designers developed luminescent pearlized finishes to go with the wild colors and fun, faux aesthetics.

Embrace the faux with our 2-tier design. Try colored pearls — or mix non-pearl beads, metal beads, faceted crystals and even shaped beads and metal filagree bead caps into your work. Our directions and bead-size chart will make the process easy no matter what materials you use.
