do you want to be your own bonnet artist? then you've come to the right place! with our custom pilot option, you can choose your own fabric combination to make a hat as unique as you are!
Here's how a custom hat works:
1. purchase this listing, and make a note about your favorite fabrics, colors, images, etc in the two fabric slots.
2. Colette (our owner & creative director) will email you with an image of fabrics that meet the criteria you describe.
3. You give Colette feedback on the fabrics... and she will continue to send images until you have found the two PERFECT fabrics for you!
usually custom bonnets take about 7-14 days to ship. if you're in a super hurry, though, please email us & we'll do our best to meet your needs!
*Please note that custom items cannot be returned or exchanged.*
*if you want us to order fabrics for you, please contact us, as there are additional fees associated with using fabrics not available in our studios.*
Our pilot-style, vintage-inspired bonnets feature a clean, snug fit in a gorgeous range of solids and patterns. From feminine florals to modern thread-dyed chambray, you're sure to find the perfect-- and completely classic-- baby hat that you're looking for. Available with or without brims.
Sizing: Our REVERSIBLE brimless pilot bonnets come in four sizes. Please measure for the best possible fit. If you have questions about sizing, please contact us. We can help. With just four sizes, your hat will fit for a long, long time. What a wise (and wonderfully cute) investment! It will change in fit and snugness, but is cute every step of the way. For a snug, vintage fit, please size DOWN (like our other hats, these run large)
Care: The cap itself is machine washable, but may shrink if you do. if you're concerned about shrinkage, please hand wash in cold water. Stretch, re-shape, and line dry or dry flat. remove the ears (carefully) before laundering.
About the design: These caps are based on a timeless style called the coif. Worn for hundreds of years, coifs are very comfortable, they keep unruly hair in order on windy days, and they are absolutely adorable... with a classic look for baby girls and a pilot cap feel for the fellas! More modern versions of the classic coif brought us the aviator hat and the bombardier cap.
Custom designs & fabrics are available.
Materials: Caps are made from cotton, linen, and cotton-linen blends, depending on the fabrics in the hat you choose.
*** Designed and handmade in Ohio, USA.
The best and most reliable way to size a hat for your darlin' guy or gal is to measure their head circumference.
Age and/or clothing size is usually not the best way to size for a hat.
Our Bonnets, Caps, and Buckets come in 6 sizes. Our smallest size fits most newborns and our largest size fits most kids ages 4 and up-- and even adults! Buckets and Caps run true-to-size. Bonnets run large. Our winter hats are lined with a thick, warm fleece and tend to run small … so for those, if you’re in doubt, size up.
Our Pixies, Pilots, and wildThings come in 4 sizes: infant, baby, kid, and adult. Again, measuring your child’s head is the best way to determine size.
We normally ship orders within 1-3 business days for in-stock items. But, since we're a small company, sometimes we are a little slower. If you need your order **FAST** please email us and we'll do everything we can to accommodate your request. Remember to add our packing time to the actual time in transit when you’re calculating when your order will arrive.
Once your package ships we'll send another email with a link so you can track your order & know exactly when it'll arrive on your doorstep. If you live in the US, you can expect your order to arrive within about 1 week, usually within 3-5 days. If you're an international client, things are more complicated (and slower) because of both distance and customs.
