Okay, my fave thing about the hat is that it's really a rather basic creation and you had random ladies falling over themselves to ask where you got it. That is skill.

I am SO impressed!

I was going to ask to see a picture from the back or from above, but your explanation helped a lot. Let me see if I understand...from your description it sounds like you basically made a Chinese "coolie" hat from cardboard and covered it with feathers.....(but it looks like a regular hat with a crown and brim!)

Is the velvet the underside of your cardboard next to your face? With the feathers on the upper side only?

You're right, this IS the best time of the year to buy a feather boa!

Oh, how inspired I am!

McJulie-O:  Yes, it's very much like a "coolie," just without that slight dip from brim to peak.  And yes, the velvet is the underside. 

It's also possible to buy hat forms from costuming shops, so you might be able to find a form to decorate, rather than making your own.  I had no luck, so I decided to have a go at building my own.  The fullness of the feathers rounds the shape out nicely, but if you made your own form with interfacing or some other fabric option, it wouldn't be too difficult to round the top.  I would love to try making this again, but I still have the original in my closet, and it's not like I need another.  Hmm, maybe there's a market for them...
