I’m winding down the Parisian Gown (at least the gown part of it), and realize I need an awesome hat to go with it.
No ordinary bergere will do – I want a big-ass-poufy-cloud-of-feathers-and-cake sort of hat. So I looked at the images of hats saved in my 1770s Pinterest Board, and came up with a few designs I like…
My plan is to purchase a simple straw hat base from Michaels Crafts, and then cut the brim down to the small brims I keep seeing on these ’70s chapeaux. The crown will be covered in something poufy, and I’ll wet-set the flip up in back, after applying any brim-trim.
Wish me luck!
