Birdcage Beanies: Former Rockette Adds Glamour To An Old Standard
Purdie Baumann of Birdcage Beanie at Artists & Fleas in Williamsburg!
Purdie Baumann turns a classic winter beanie into a practical yet glamorous accessory with just a few stitches.
A former Rockette at Radio City Music Hall, Purdie had the idea of adding a birdcage style tulle veil to a knit cap to help her warm up in style. Accustomed to stitching her ballet slippers, she applied the same sewing technique to stitch the tulle to a familiar cap. “I made three,” she told me recently, “and my dancer friends bought them right off my head.”
