I also took the time to continue on my 1950's half hat.
I got it covered in fabric. The fabric is actually the an old ballgown that I made in 2005. It's polyester and that ballgown has been used as a playdress both Indoors and outdoors. I managed to get it fairly wrinkle free with the help of a lot of steam. Still there were some permanent damanges to the fabric, but I don't think they will be too visible. I simply glued the fabric on to the hat form.
I also added combs to the inside of the hat so it will be secured on my head.
Now it's time to decide on the decorations of the hat.
