The Amazing World of Hats
A hat is a stylish accessory that frames your face, it flatters and protects. A hat can give you confidence and transform an outfit, it makes a statement about how you are feel and who you want to be.
So how do you find one the right hat for you?
Several people have been asking me how a handmade hat is created – so I’ve created a short video to show. Hope you enjoy!
I’m so excited!
I now have an online Etsy shop selling my ready-made hats, fascinators and headpieces. Please check it out – you can find it via the shop button in the menu bar or my clicking here.
If you would like a custom made order, please send me a message using the contact form.
Where it started!
I have recently been to London to learn about traditional Millinery techniques from the great Rose Cory. Rose is often referred to as the “Milliners Milliner” and during her forty year career and has made fabulous hats for many celebrities including the late Queen Mum.
I’m writing this post as a personal record / memory jogger of how I made my Sinamay Hat under Rose’s guidance. What has become apparent over the last few months is that there is no right or wrong way to make a hat, every millinery has their own preference, tips and techniques. If you have any of your own, please send me your comment – I would love to know.
