I bring to you this little workshop to show you how easy it is to make your own occasion wear, budget bridal fascinator/headwear , or something for the Brides maids and even something for yourself if you are going to a formal occasion. Depending on your preferences you may or may not want to add the veil!
Generally in couture millinery the use of glue is discouraged and you are more encouraged to stitch things as discreetly as possible. For this it is actually best to use both techniques as the materials used can at times – not be penetrated by the needles. I recommend the use of 2 different styles of needles for the ease of completion. Curved needles come in different thicknesses and I recommend that you have at least 2 different ones in your kits.
Also – once again I return to the Milliner’s Poupee/Foam Head which you will find in the previous workshops that I have shared in my Workshops, Burdatyle and Craftsy.
MATERIALS: Plastic comb, Petersham/Grosgrain Ribbon – Hot Glue Gun – UHU Glue – Threads – Straight needle – Curved needle – Millinery wire – Flowers – Milliner’s Veil or Bridal Veil – Milliners Poupee/Foam Head- Wire cutter or pinch nose pliers with cutter incorporated.
Plan a weekend getaway in these sweater dresses and furry accessories.
