I had made the base of the hat previously for a party and decided this was the perfect outfit to include it.
The hat also includes a veil that isn’t shown in the pictures but even I thought it was too over the top. Maybe for a Halloween party if I dress as a widow or something…
The hat is attached to my hair with a couple of clips and some bobby pins.
I made the base following instructions by Lynn McMasters but had to improvise on the materials a bit.
Cardboard from a frozen pizza box, cotton fabric, glue, chinese braid, netting, striped wool, pleated taffeta, a cameo brooch.
