1st November 2020: Hat!
Other than the moon decoration this hat is done <3 I bought a big sunhat from Primark for £1, then used heavy sew-in interfacing to support the brim and extend the radius by 2". This is supported by millinery wire which also allows me to change how the brim sits!
For the crown I used some buckram that I steamed into shape, padded it up with 2oz wadding and added a little bit more wire for posing support.
Once I was satisfied with the shape, I covered the whole thing in spun velvet, with pink/purple taffeta for the underside and satin bias around the edge. The band is some red jacquard I had lying around and the flowers were from the Range.
As for the moon I'm going to test one of my reject resin ones from Luna and if that fails, make one with foam/worbla!
