I sent the last one off as a wedding gift to a friend, and had stitched out a couple of the pieces for this one already... so I finished it. I think it turned out quite well, despite a couple of weird hiccups my machine had at the edges of one of the brim pieces and the edge of the crown. The flaws aren't very noticable, though.

that's so lovely! a wonderful idea for a feminine top hat. may I ask how fixed it (can't think of a more appropriate word in english...) on your head? with hair pins?

Here's a shot of the bottom:


I just sewed two teardrop-style metal hairclips to the underside. Last time I wore this, I was out on my bike, so I used a couple of bobby pins too, just as backups.
