What was your inspiration?
I made this as part of my "Liberation" collection honoring influential women. http://craftydiversions.com/patterns/liberation.htm
What are you most proud of?
I love the shape of this hat.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
It's easier than it looks! The pieces are worked flat then seamed. The details are in the finishing.
