HAPPY HAT-OWEEN! I spent many hours filming and editing this just to make that pun. If you don’t like awkward posing you may not enjoy this video – but if you like pretty hats you’ll be in heaven!
I wanted to share relevant links for each piece, but that made the description box WAY too cluttered. For additional information and relevant links about every piece please check out this tumblr post:
As said in the video, all [except for the straw hat] pieces in this video were drafted and made entirely by me! I mostly use heavy weight interfacing and wire, with buckram for thinner brims. I generally aim to achieve historically accurate shapes, though the materials I choose and construction methods aren’t always as accurate!
I’m self taught when it comes to making hats – it’s just something I figured out over time. I WILL make a tutorial eventually, hopefully within the next few months but it kind of depends!
Re: Combs. I use plastic combs to secure most of my hats since I don’t get along well with hat pins – I’m not sure what i’m doing wrong, but they always seem useless to me! The combs are usually pinned in so I can remove them and secure them in a more historically accurate way later on (if I ever figure out how).
If you see any mysterious safety pins in the brim they are for storage (so I can hang the hats on hooks) I missed a few and only noticed when editing ;_;
MOST of the dates on title plates were taken from the book “Women’s Hats, Headdresses, and Hairstyles” – they are approximate.
