What was your source for this sewing project?
Online Photo or Website
Name of website or photo 1880s Buckram Hat Pattern (by truly victoria)
What materials did you use? Fabric, buckram, miliners wire, lining, doule bias tape, wide ribbon, satin, pearls. a feather
What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use a thimble. It is almost all sewn by hand and, if you are anything like me, you might be out of practice :) Take your time when straightening and rolling the wire frame so yet get a nice clean shape to the hat. Also, use a thick fabric (I used drapery), to help give structure.
