For a recent burlesque swap I decided to attempt my first ever head piece thing.
My swap partner said she was a black, red and pearls type gal so I went with it!
I used plastic mesh to make the base, cut and sewed it into shape. I then wrapped the whole thing in black satin-y material, made the mesh 'leaves' and sewed it all together adding a cluster of 'pearls', like little berries, as the finishing touch. There is a clear plastic comb firmly attached underneath and I have to admit to a small amount of swanning about the flat in this to 'test' that it would stay put when it's on  Roll Eyes

Some in progress piccies:


Just finished:


For a better view of the 'leaves':


Unfortunately I've got no piccies of this perched on the old noggin as I had to rush off to send it but I loved it so much I'm now in the process of making myself one! What do you think? Any questions/crits? All welcome  Smiley

Ooh! I had never thought of using needlepoint plastic as a base! I've been really coveting little headpieces lately, especially to go with my steampunk wear.

Very cute and you've totally inspired me! Thanks for sharing.  Grin

It's great!! You could even make one of these in a different color scheme and attach it to a birdcage veil if you knew someone who was getting married.

Hey - thanks for the nice comments!  Grin
I would have loved to add a veil but didn't have time to source the material - definitely an option, think I might try larger on the 'leaves' too, perhaps ones with buttons...oh dear - got me started now...

The hat/fascinator looks lovely! I would suggest ebay as a good place to look for the net and other hat making supplies, it is the cheapest place I've found so far for these things. Search for "millinery net".
