Austin, Texas, U...
This was my first attempt at millinery. It turned out… OK-ish. If I did this again, I would take the time to source out some real millinery supplies because I made this as a gift shortly after I arrived in Austin, so I had to get all my materials at JoAnn Fabrics. My local JoAnn in Austin is HUGE with a great inventory! But I think the wire I used in the brim probably wasn’t the right type. I also learned how exact you have to be with hats— some of my measurements were just a smidgen off. There are a lot more details to consider than I realized!
I used a decorative tulle with the stiffest netting I could find. If you make this, I would purchase real millinery wire because I think it makes all the difference!
