Description

I decided to make a fascinator to go with my dress for the Melbourne Cup rather than buying one as the one’s I liked were really expensive.

I’m really pleased with the result.

Material Notes

I used turquoise silk dupion for the ribbon.
I bought my sinamay base with hairclip and feathers from www.feather.com.au.
The bead was from a $2 packet from Spotlight as was the satin bias.

    This is gorgeous! the blue silk dupion complements the feathers so well.
