This little cocktail hat was the fastest project that I had to make for my millinery course assessment. The base of the hat is made with buckram and when you wet buckram, it is very easy to mold and shape and then it drys very quickly. Decorating the hat took the most time and that is the part I love most. The fabrics used to cover and decorate the buckram base are all silk.
