However, I need your help to vintage it up... so please please can you send me your suggestions and tips on design, where to get appropriately vintagey supplies, or cheap supplies, should I glue or sew on embellishments?
It's on an alice band and sits forward on the head, looks like the current embellishment bits could be removed.
So I was thinking.... fruit, flowers, birds? Netting? What do you think?
Quick terrible photo showing position of hat:
Dandy Lion Market in Highgate, it was very sweet and cosy, I'm thinking of having a stall there at a future event. Anyway, here's some millinery ribbon and cerise pink lace I picked up there for £1 each... could be used for the hat
I also got these two lovely handmade bracelets, the button one was £9 and the hand dyed leather one was £5
oooh and I came back with this 1944 Gymkhana Rosette, which I need to find a use for!
Also... I had a go at making something out for fimo, for the first time since the 90s...
If you've got any suggestions or tips for my hat venture I will be very grateful!
