Hats : going Victorian


I got a request from a customer on DaWanda to make her a hat like the one above, but then for the winter, simpler and from wool. After some searching through my traditional costume books, I found a pattern from a traditional costume in the east of The Netherlands (dating from the same Victorian time) that looked a bit like it.
(Twenthe - from my postcard collection)

I changed the pattern a bit and made it from some leftover fabric to see how it came out, and after some adaptations I decided to do it. Found some pretty wool in my fabric stack and attached some of my "leaves" to give it the P8Accessories touch, and here it is. I like it ! Now I hope the customer likes it too.....

Great! It has both the Victorian area feel and the P8 Accessories touch.
You are very clever, you know.
