A few weeks ago I started making hats in my 20 minutes of 'nice' (i.e. not work) sewing at the end of the day.
This is the first - still in progress, but close to being finished.
The silver trim is cut from embroidered tulle, and the feathers (purple), are individual stands of ostrich feather, cut off a plume and sewn on separately.
The crown is interlined with one layer of linen buckram, and the brim with two.
Quite happy with it - is ages since I made hats!
