A while ago, a very lovely friend of mine asked me to create a HUGE brimmed 1920s cloche for an event she would be attending in May. I said sure!! You know me! I adore making hats. The only problem with this was I had never made one before. After about a day of extreme freaking out, I set about molding the straw crown frame and fiddling with the wire brim. I loved it so much that I made one for myself that will be covered at a later date....
Well, miss Lonna got the chance to wear her hat to her event and it looked fabulous on her and I obtained permission from her to share the photos I took of the hat before I sent it to her. She has impeccable taste and I was salivating all over the materials she sent me to play with....I really did not want to send this hat to her, I sooooooo loved it!!
All of the materials she sent to me were vintage save for the satin that I used for the band and lining. I would love to get lost in Lonna's vast collection of pretties....sigh!!!
The Lovely Miss Lonna...isn't she fabulous? Everything about her screams glamour!
