More Hats to Love*

Quickly, with feeling. 52 Hats in as many weeks? Impressive. Check it out here on this blog. A pumpkin patch of hats for newborn babies (so it was last year. It's still a good idea!). From Anthropologie Addict, there's this sheer black hat with matching embellishments.
* The above hat was in the window yesterday at Dame Couture in Evanston. Guess how it was made? Leave your thoughts in the comments.


Thoughts on Life and Millinery. said...

Those are yo-yos...circles of brown silk/satin are cut, then sewn with a running around the edge with just the tiniest hem, then the thread is pulled tight.

The trick would be having the fabric not fray out.

The various sized yo-yos were probably attached to a buckram skullcap.

Thanks for sharing has me itching to give the idea a whirl.

Yo-yos, yes! Aren't they pretty? It's amazing how just a different fabric makes the yo-yos looks so classy instead of ready for the next quilter.
