So what I did was, take a nasty lime green, old hat that was released as a hatter’s hat years ago and I covered it.
I cut and pieced together pieces of green satin that matched the color I was going for, a hunter green (found at Wal-mart in the fabric department), then I took a two yard piece of pink satin cut it to a 12×72 inch piece and tied it around the bace of the hat. Taking a large piece of lace, about 36×54 inches, I placed it over the hat and allowed it to drape down about two inches and cut it into a circle. Then taking the sash and loosening it I arranged the lace so it covered the hat to the brim and tightened the sash. Triming the edges to look ratted and end at the brim of the hat. I added four hat pins and a peacock feather I had. Lastly I typed and printed the sign “In This Style 10/6” taking the hat pins I secured the sign and the hat is complete.
Mel is going to look so good dressed as the hatter. I also think she is excited about the hat. Tell me what you think.
