I got to attend a 6 week local millinery course and the experience was great.
|Hats designed by Catherine Kelley Embellish Atelier|
|Gerrie's hat is made specifically for an outfit she loves.|
|These are my WIP pieces in my noggin size.|
|Sue's an unassuming millinery master.|
|Fascinator wip using sinamay - to be completed.|
|Fedora wip after sewing on petersham tape to the brim and inside the crown.|
|Almost finished with a classic side bow|
|Complete with feathers and self-made flowers|
|This stage was exciting - both crown and brim fit my noggin! No drama:)|
|These are a selection of hat crowns and brims Catherine uses.|
|The black felt will be my future urban Autumn hat.|
|Just some of Catherine's designs.|
This has been a great year for learning new skills.
Once I finish the fascinator/s, I'll show you how they turn out. More importantly, I have a hat that fits my noggin.
