I ordered some double-sided buckram so I could make some stronger hats..

So I went right with making a top hat!


Base is the double-sided buckram with wire to help shape the brim. The hat is covered with crushed velvet and lined with cotton fabric Smiley A little bit of trim and lace were added.

I have a few more on the way, even a full sized top hat!

should be lots of fun!

Cheesy

I looooooooove your hats and respect the time it takes to make teensy handcrafted beauties! Is wiring buckram your favorite way to go? do you stretch your shaped pieces over a form or just work with the shape til you get what you want?

beautiful piece.

I sew different pieces together when it comes to top hats. Double-sided buckram is a bit of a pain to shape. I'll usually wire brims just so people can reshape them or to keep it the way I want it to be. Smiley

This piece is 3 different pieces of buckram Smiley

This is so beautiful, you should sell hats like this. I'd buy one in a heartbeat.
