Made in the USA

Sharing pictures of construction techniques I was taught during my classes with Sarah Havens.
 
I knew exactly the design I wanted to capture in a structured element.
Using vintage hat blocks for the crown and a different one for the brim I was able to
execute my vision.
Although labor intensive I am proud to say that with two yards of sinamay my brown/beige polka dot Chapeau really is called Pretty Woman.
  
The other photograph is a technique simply called free form.
My vision for this was to achieve something that was vintage to a farm or cottage.
The style you might have seen on a grandmother or aunt working in the garden.
The hat you see hanging by the door that can be grabbed on your way out to check on your flower garden.
I used a fedora hat block for the crown and then free formed the brim. It is a hat I would purchase to use as a decorative accent by any door.
 
Now looking forward to constructing another Pretty Woman in black/beige polka dots.
 
Happy to say "Made In The USA"
