111  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: I am making the Duchess' hat from Alice in Wonderland on: August 29, 2005 12:48:47 PM
Buckram is what's generally used for the base for costume hats, including hennins and attifets (medieval and Elizabethan head-eating monstrosities.).  Any costumer's shop or website should have some.    As for stabililty, you can attach it to a wimple - a close-fitting hood that covers the whole head.

Try this pattern for ideas:

Hope that helps!

From the point of view of someone who swims with a potyy-training 2-yo pretty often, I have to say I have recently reversed my stance on 2-piece bathing suits for little girls.  Peeling a wet one-piece off a dancing child shouting "PEE RIGHT NOW" is not my favorite activity.

Try this site, too...  This woman does nothing but eat, sleep, and breathe reconstructing LoTR costumes, as far as I can tell.  It might be a little more info than you need.

Good luck!

I would say you could go the ship-wench route, chemise, floofy petticoats, corset/cincher, or you can wear an over-large men's poets shirt, open at the neck as far as it will go, a tight weskit or vest, and skintight leather/pleather leggings tucked into your ROCKING boots.  A wide belt, a scarf with jangly bits sewn on, and some ginormous hoop earrings, and you can pirate with the best of them.
