The past week I got bit by the hat bug, and with all the decent sized scraps I’ve got lying around, I decided to give it a shot. With the help of a super-awesome youtube tutorial by the great people at http://www.lastwear.com/ (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lPaFTZDTeWA), I was able to adjust the pattern until I finally got a model I felt satisfied with. I did go through quite a few tries until I landed on the one I liked though. Tries affectionally referred to as “hat corpses”.
Figured I might as well add a picture of the so-far completed outfit, from this years 17th of May. =)
I am calling it V1 because, although it is fully wearable and actually quite comfortable, I am planning to do some embroidery work on it. Hopefully some ivy vines along the hem of the skirt and maybe on the cape as well.
