It is done early! Yeah me! I made a hat for my Silky Skies Dress.
As you can see, I’ve decided to take some of the elements from this hat:
I took the shape from this hat:
I took the smaller size from this hat:
The Challenge: #7 Tops and toes
Fabric: Buckram, poly somethings
Pattern: self drafted
Notions: laces, tassels, ribbons, corded piping, cord, wire (hangers), hot glue.
How historically accurate is it? Not very. May be 15%. The materials are very modern and as I have no real idea of hat building techniques I had to make stuff up. I’m fairly certain that did not include hangers and hot glue.
Hours to complete: 7
First worn: not yet
Total cost: most of the fabric came from my stash. I did have to buy buckram and trims so about $40
In spite of the low accuracy, I’m pleased with how this hat turned out. It could have been a smidge bigger but I’m still pleased.
