The hat was a new challenge for me, I've never made anything like it before, but i've been lucky enough to join the Uso Girl Costume Construction group on Facebook, that has lots and lots of resources, and tutorials for making these costumes. I used the tutorial as a rough guide, and made a slightly lazier version, without any wire or lining inside haha
I made a frame with some buckram fabric first, I used the tutorial pattern for the correct shaped pieces and then sewed and glued the parts together. I used masking tape to hold the buckram in place while it dried.
Rather than using wire as the tutorial suggested, I just reinforced the bottom edge and the inside of the hat with more buckram to give it a more solid shape.
Next I covered the frame in felt(which the tutorial suggested, I would've used white but i had some black lying around lol) I glued this in place before cutting out my blue satin.
Finally I pinned and sewed my satin in two pieces, the top, and then the side. And last but not least, I pinned the star onto the hat, a little off center from the front, all i need to do is sew/glue it on, then it'll be complete!
