Hat Tutorial (not mine)

leave a comment »

Dreamstress just did a great blog on refurbishing a modern straw hat into something costume worthy.

A bergére, a new word for a hat I know you’ve seen, but maybe only in paintings.

bergere

She did an excellent tutorial with clear instructions and photos that actually help explain the process.  And no wasted steps.

If straw hats cost more, I think it might take more boldness to cut into them and maybe more handholding in the instructions, but seriously, what harm can you do? It is a cheap straw hat.

Go for it!

I love sewing!
