I’ve got hats on the brain (ha!) at the moment. I got this wonderful book The Modern Girl’s Guide to Hatmaking by Mary Jane Baxter and with some time of work next week it seems like the perfect time to give hat making a go! If there are any hobby hat makers out there, tips would be greatly appreciated.
I have also just added a collection of vintage hats to our Etsy shop Satiable Fashion which has been giving me lots of inspiration. I’ve had the cheeky try on to see which styles suit me (no photos of this are included!) and just handling different styles of hat gives a better idea of how they’re formed.
I thought I’d share some photos of the lovely, vintage hats I’ve been lucky enough to get my hands on and add to Etsy.
These first two are vintage Kangol hats from the 1960’s. I was thinking of making a fur hat like the first but a bit longer, like a Russian hat. How cute is the pretty in pink Hat too?!
