schnui commented on the project Green draped straw hat
I added the edge after draping but draped again after I added the Sinamay. Sinamay drapes easily when damped with a fine spray of water.

schnui added the project The famous Renfrew tee shirt
I bought this pattern a while ago and I have used it so many times. Perfect tee shirt pattern for me and here is another version.

A millinery lesson in draping a straw hat base. The edge of the hat is finished with black Sinamay and a black and white plaited braid.
