For ages, I've been working on and off on this glamourous turban style hat from a vintage pattern on the V&A website. It takes a lot longer than you'd imagine as there's so much fabric! Anyhow, I finished it the other day, and I love the result!! I have been told that it looks a bit like a towel though, which I kinda see, so my friend (who is an antiques dealer) is letting me choose one of the 1940's brooches that he sells. Very kind! I'm really excited Cheesy



And for fun times...!

I love-love-love this! I've been looking for a turban pattern myself and you've totally inspired me to get my butt moving on it ASAP. Hopefully I'll look as adorable as you!
