Description

This is my first straw hat that I have made in my first year of millinery classes. The red roses are made of silk crepe de chine and silk organza using the French flower making process. It is very time consuming but such a lovely craft to learn

Material Notes

Straw, silk

    Love the way the roses peep out under the brim to say hello. The tilt gives such a nice insouciance to it!

      Thanks so much. I saw celebrity Ditta Von Tese wear something similar on TV and her hat gave me the idea to make this. The roses were so much fun to make.

    There is something very French and a bit saucy about this hat !!! Well done.

      Thanks again. I was inspired by a hat that I saw on a Pinterest board to make this and I am sure it was an American board. Pinterest is a great site for hat inspiration.

      I loved making the roses and even though they are very time consuming, they are not hard. I am sure you would enjoy making them too.
