So I have this lovely book that is all Edwardian and Victorian dresses and anything else you need. I love it it's like fashion porn Smiley I found some awesome hats in there I've finished one so far I have two more on the way Cheesy

Hat is made with a buckram base, it has wire around it to keep the shape. It is covered with velvet and trim. The Inside of the hat is covered with feathers, roses and lace! Cheesy

That first hat is just delighful(as are the rest)!

I want to start making hats like these for myself, I know they are women's hats, but I don't care I want one.

The other day I saw a video of one of my favorite people, James St James, In one of the most delightful hats. I wanted one so bad.

I am literally at an awe!!! They all look great but the first one took my breath away! Ah, to be worn with a well-fitting black pencil skirt suit (sort of 1940s), with a white neck-tie and scarlet lips to an ex-husbands funeral... VERY black widow!!! Cheesy

P.S. I am not married and never have been, and I do not harbour any unhealthy thoughts towards my wonderful boyfriend! Wink Just this hat was SO inspiring and should definitely be used in a photo shoot or a movie!!!

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.

For the first hat. I figured out how to make them on my own. They're from images in a book called "Victorian and Edwardian Fashions from La Mode Illustree"  Is an awesome re-print of old wood cuts. Beautiful stuff.

For the two tricorns I've been making them for a while, so I just do what ever comes to mind.

I've been making has now for 2 years just a few days ago! Cheesy

Thanks!

I love them also Cheesy
Take a look at my profile Wink

Those are fantastic...love, love, love them.   Cheesy  I so wish hats were still the rage since I would wear them every day.

I hope that hat will continue to become more "the rage" again. instead of just about what someone's hair looks like.

Excellent work. Working on steampunk accessories...?

Thanks, I really make my hats for all different styles. but these could fit into the steampunk genre. Wink

Im (kinda) sorry to hear that, I only say kinda because I cant wait to see more of your hats!! They are beautiful  Grin


hehe yeah, both a blessing and a hardship... The house payment thing is killing me, but I'll work on my own little small business and hope to grow more Wink

those are absolutely AMAZING!!  you definately have a gift for creating!


Thanks! I do try to make some eye catching and original designs Cheesy

what is the name of the book, if you don't mind my asking. I'm working on a production of A Doll's House at the moment and that certainly sounds like it'd make for a great reference!
just kidding, i see you've already posted that. thanks though, and again, great work!
