How well it compliments the rest of the outfit 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.
