Pill Box Hat with satin flower

Added Aug 16, 2014

This pill box hat was another lesson in my millinery class. Using buckram to make a base and then learning to use different layers of materials to come to the finished hat. The flower was made by me too using Duchese satin and a fairly stiff interfacing.

    Of all the hats I’ve seen in your collection so far, this one is my favorite. It’s so classy and elegant and the flower sets it off so well.

      This is my second favourite and I really loved the whole process of making this hat. It is almost completely made by hand. The flower was made mainly on my sewing machine and then put together by hand.

    If your godmother can show you how to make these flowers, you will be surprised at how easy they are. If she isn’t able to, maybe I can try and make a short tutorial.
