So, I've been watching mini top hats since I discovered Lolitas and cause I started to sew last year I needed to make something with my obsession. The one I did is from leftover fabric and tule from a skirt I made. Really cute. I need to try my hand at a real top hat (with not just fabric). I did in my own way but get a little help from a tute here and Gothic and Lolita Bible scans.
Here's modeled by my desktop. Bottom wasn't sewed yet but you can see details:
And with the yellow tule I made (my first) kanzashi flower!! Is blurry pic but is cause is so small (only 4 cm actually):
As you can guess yellow is my fave colour and I'm obsessed with black/white/yellow combo
I used that tutorial: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=24944.0 for the flower and the clips linked in it!!
