Red, white and blue racing hat

This hat is totally made from a material called Jinsin. It drapes rather stiffly but you can create some wonderful shapes with it. This would be the fastest hat I have made in my millinery course.

      Thank-you Martin. I am learning millinery at a fashion college run by the Queensland government in Australia. Do you have a fashion college in your city?

      we have a fashion academy here in Rotterdam with a section called arts&crafts, but as far as I know they only teach sewing, no millinery.

      I wonder Martin if you google millinery and put in Rotterdam and see if there isn’t a private teacher.

      You are right Ellen. It is your national colours. I should send it to you to wear on your national day celebrations.

    Unique is the right word Liliv. I had no idea how this hat would turn out using this material – Jinsin. It isn’t my favourite medium for millinery.
