Bring Back the Hat. Part 7.
Some people may have already seen this hat when I wore it during PFW… HERE!
However not everyone is going to know that this hat was a DIY!
It is incredibly easy to do and the perfect party topper for the festive season.
All you need is…
- a circular hat base
- approx. 1-2m string of sequins (depends on the size of the base)
- a needle
- thread to match the sequins
- A plastic hair comb
You can buy all these things from a good haberdashery, but I particularly like the selection at V.V.Rouleaux, and they also sell online… HERE!
Very simply you pin the sequins staring in the middle around and around in a coil until it covers the whole hat and then stitch them down. Following that, you attach the comb to the inside with a few strong stitches to help you to wear the hat more comfortably.
The holidays are here and at last I am getting a little break, work has been so wonderful this year and I have loved every moment. I have worked with some amazingly talented people but now a rest feels fully earned. So please don’t hate me if for the next few weeks you hear from me a little less than normal.
