My First Hat EVER!!!

Added Nov 23, 2013

Vienna, Austria






I always loved hats but I always was afraid of them, because I found they didn´t stay me well… so I never wore one. Until now!

Some weeks ago I went to a workshop, organized by Swarowsky.
There was a professional modiste there who explained us how a hat is basically made
and also there were there any kind of hat-making ingredients:
felt, Swarowsky stones in all colours and sizes, feathers, tulle etc.

And this is the result after 2 hours of concentrate working:
I´m really proud of my first hat and I wore it already to a theater evening.
And surprise: I didn´t feel strange with it, on the contrary, I felt very comfortable.

I love my first hat :-)

      Yes, indeed, is the same fabric, although I bought it already in february from a fabric shop in Vienna, when I sewed my pants.
