For our first Millinery task this semester, we were to create a sinamay fascinator. We blocked it on a head block and then made the appropriate templates.
I was the only one to make something a bit more simple. Most of the other girls made racewear style ones, with big decorations and the like. But all i wanted was a cute little 1940’s style facinator…..With bows of course…..and black velvet!
Three layers are used, black, then a watermelon kind of colour in the middle, then black again. We made our own binding, wired the edges and hand stitched everything together :-)
Im proud, as i didnt use any hot glue on this project haha.
But the next one i made, i can’t be so proud.
Im not sure whether this is the kind of thing to post on burdastyle….? It is all hand stitched :/? does that count haha!
