I made another hat!

This time I went all out coating everything in lace.. I had so much with this, and Im really happy with how it turned out.

Id never wear it myself I dont think (not much of a fan of white Tongue) but.. it was mostly an experiment



The front is part of a corset I had, I had been saving pieces of it for a while since it was badly made (mass produced le chateau top..)


The back


I dont look happy, hahaha!


the side/top


Please let me know what you think Smiley

Very pretty lace -looks like a wedding cake.  I'm not totally sure about the shape, though.  It's a little too boxy for the delicacy of the lacey whiteness.  A more rounded shape might work better (like a cloche), or perhaps a little brim would soften it just right.  A good start though, definitely!   Smiley

Thanks for the feedback!! Much appreciated. And yes, the shape isnt really how I wanted it to come out, but hats are definately a learning process!! hehe.

That's very nifty thrifty. Reminds me of the funeral costume that Lucy wore in Dracula

Keep experimenting! I think the lace is awesome. The shape kind of gives it a badass feel though. For a more innocent look, I'd go with softer lines and an ivory rather than white.
