      Thank-you flowergirl22. I am still training to be a milliner and hope to sell once I am fully trained which will be at the end of 2015. I can sell my hats if I want but I don’t like to sell the ones I have made in class as these are my learning hats.

      You are very sweet Liliv and if you lived in Australia, I would be happy for you to have it. My daughter is keen to have it for herself though.

    Lovely! I’ve signed up for millinery classes (which will start in September) and every time I see a great hat design like this, I get more excited about it.

      Thank-you and I hope you will love millinery as much as I do. It isn’t difficult but it is time consuming. But I am sure you won’t mind spending time making a special 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.

    Adorable!! Do you add the edge before or after draping??
