I have finished 1872 Lilac Dream’s hat and that completes the whole project. Sometimes, after wearing a dress for a few hours, I realize that there are things that need to change and that may happen with this dress. There are no events planned until spring, so this will have to wait. For now it is done.
My husband said he thought there was too much on that hat. I always worry I don’t put enough on because I can’t seem to find that line between embellished and crazy.
Another difficulty I have is with being too matchy-matchy. I tried to live on the edge and add a detail to the hat that didn’t match.
I hate it because it doesn’t match! It might come off yet. It is in the back so if I don’t have to see it I might be able to let it go. I may trim back that netting too. For now it is best to just walk away and let it be for now. I’ll look at it with fresh eyes in a week or two.
