1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Victorian Inspired Top Hats on: November 21, 2009 09:25:17 PM

These are a small size Top hat that I switched around to work the way I wanted it to. The hats are Blocked by hand on a hat block. I added French Ribbon and Ostrich feathers to the two hats. I really enjoy this style and wanted to share it. These are the first ones I made like this and so far people have liked them Smiley The hats have a good Victorian riding hat feel to them, which is why I likely love these ones I made Smiley

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Mini Driving Hat and Mini Top Hat on: August 02, 2009 03:43:13 PM
First is my newest hat block Smiley I just got it a week ago, this is my first finished one, I have another on the block currently.. This is what is called a mini driving hat, thought a few people here might like it.

This was made with a hat shaper, like a hat block but plastic instead of wood, so NOT simple to work with. Which is something some of you could use if you don't want to send the money on a hat block ($300 +) Hat Shapers are about $28 ish. (I drilled holes into mine so I could use it with a felt hood)

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Miss me? I've been busy making new HATS! Top hats, Pillboxes and Tricorns! Minis on: June 29, 2009 01:53:13 PM

As always, this are all hand made. I make all of the forms and or block the hat my self. If you have any questions I'm more then willing to answer them Smiley
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Top Hats are fun! :D on: September 15, 2008 02:53:31 PM
I ordered some double-sided buckram so I could make some stronger hats..

So I went right with making a top hat!

Base is the double-sided buckram with wire to help shape the brim. The hat is covered with crushed velvet and lined with cotton fabric Smiley A little bit of trim and lace were added.

I have a few more on the way, even a full sized top hat!

should be lots of fun!

Hat is made with a buckram base, it has wire around it to keep the shape. It is covered with velvet and trim. The Inside of the hat is covered with feathers, roses and lace! Cheesy

I just finished this last night. same as above but with red velvet Cheesy The velvet is also covered with an interesting web styled fishnet.

A satin mini tricorn covered with fishnet Smiley

I decided to add a small twist to the peacock fasinators I make. I added some feather butterflies in it Smiley

Started something new. I'm preparing for the U-district Street fair here in seattle, and I wanted something for people that may not like the high style of many of my other hats..

So This is what I thought I'd make... Cloches (only one cloche picture) and Newsboys hats


8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Victorian Skull Tricorn and Yellow mini Top hat. on: April 09, 2008 01:06:28 PM
Busy busy, with lots more to come. I haven't posted in a while, but I just got a bolt of this fabric in the mail. I'm highly happy with it, it's a heavyweight fabric so it's awesome for hats!

Blocked buckram with wire to reinforce the edges, trim added along the edges. Feathers added for a good accent Smiley


Blocked wool felt, wire reinforced brim with trim sewn over top. Feathers and netting added to the crown instead of on the sides or back.

The yellow hurts my eyes Wink but I love it anyways Cheesy Though it does have a bit a green to it also.
