I may go back someday and use the proper materials to remake it so doesn't look so . . . homemade. But I'm certainly happier with this version that the purple vampire fraggle that View B turned out to be.
These are quick iphone pics taken in my bathroom mirror. This hat is part of an outfit that I'm planning to wear to an event in November. Once I finish the dress (dove gray crepe -- not yet started!) I will properly model the whole outfit.
But in the meantime I'm kind of too excited about my new headgear to not share it. I'm a sucker for old-fashioned hats. I don't have the panache or the guts to wear them regularly, but I will use the slightest excuse to put one on. You can see the details better when the styrofoam head models it.
|Top view -- This is where you can really see the uneven lumps that should be elegantly draped in gathers.|
|Rear View -- who doesn't love a good fluffy bow?|
|This hat really kind of sits on the forehead. I'm gonna need an elegant updo in the back.|
