ABOUT BY BETTY
Hello I’m Beth. I love hats, I love making hats and I love to see
the effect a fabulous hat can have on a person!
Since launching my millinery label, ‘By Betty’ in early 2012,
I spend my time creating bespoke headwear for my clients and
designing and hand-crafting pieces for my latest collection.
Working from my studio in Burley-in-Wharfedale, I personally
design and make everything from stylish winter hats and caps,
to flamboyant hats and fascinators for clients going to weddings
or to the races. I’ve seen even the most hesitant hat wearers
transformed by wearing a hat they love. They stand taller and
straighter and can’t help but smile at themselves in the mirror!
I will work with you to create your perfect piece of headwear.
No need to trail around the shops, simply come to me with your
outfit, have lots of fun trying on hats and fascinators, agree what
you’d like then pop back a few weeks later to collect it...
what could be simpler!
COMMISSIONING A HAT
If you’d like to commission a hat please get in touch via phone
or email to arrange a time to come and see me.
Consultations are very informal and lots of fun!
During the hour-long session you’ll have opportunity to try lots
of different hats and pick the style that best complements your
outfit, flatters you and reflects your personality.
I personally make each and every hat to order; so colours, styles
and trims can be chosen to ensure you end up with your perfect
piece of headwear.
I like to allow 4 weeks to make up bespoke pieces but can
sometimes turn things around more quickly depending on work
load, so please do ask. I ask for a 20% deposit at the point of
ordering, with the balance being due once your hat is complete.
In addition to making up bespoke pieces, I also have a range
of hats and fascinators available to hire, with prices ranging
from £30 to £60. Please get in touch for further details.
