Inspired by one of my very favourite fashionistas Anna Piaggi, I found an image of her in a daring, jaunty hat, and drew on it for my own millinery creation.
It's unfinished, only a few things to do here and there, and finalise with some trim (a big dashing feather? a fat contrasting Petersham ribbon? oh the options are endless). It's one of the two hats I started - I'll show you the second (which needs a lot more work) once I find the battery charger. Promise.
The brim is assymetrical and as you can see the block I used had a very definite design feature (the dip) which really makes the hat what it is. It's made from a beautiful fur felt, which is, as I've been taught, much easier to work with than a wool felt. The results of which were demonstrated in our workshop, the wool felt doesn't block as smoothly, it really is inferior. Sorry sheep.
