OMG I love it!  Is it stretchy enough to put over your head or are there buttons on the back?  If you cared to share a tutorial on how to attach the feathers and how you used the different fabrics, I'd love to try something similar to this one day.

This is beautiful!  I adore feathers, and you've got just a great bunch of colors and textures going on there.  Great job.  I might have to try something like this myself.

It's stretchy enough to pull over your head - what's more is that sari silk will stretch out and not return to its former tightness, so if you are making a hat or something with it, you may want to make it a little smaller than you need.

As for the feathers, I just covered the ends in fabric glue and wrapped silk floss around, leaving a little loop to stick my crochet hook through. This means the feathers have to be prepared a head of time. I'm experimenting with other ways of attaching them though - like maybe with jump rings? We'll see...
