Spitfire Sisters


The Spitfire Sisters are a close harmony vocal group who perform at a wide variety of venues for private parties and public celebrations.  Their repretoire includes forties classics as well as contemporary music they have written and recorded themsleves.  

I have made many hats for them over the years and this is a trio of little perching hats that they often wear for thier regular booking on the Belmond British Pulman.  This luxury train serves lunch and tea to the guests as it travels around the countryside and the girls move along the train from carriage to carriage, entertaining as they go.  This photograph was from a special day when Mary Berry was also on the train as the special guest speaker, and the girls sang a specially written song for her ‘Afternoon Tea’.
