So I found this gorgeous little white pleated hat MONTHS ago. I’ve been sitting and staring at it for that long. It’s been perched on different versions of head forms I have and it’s taken a while for the its’ new vision to appear. The fanned out pleats are simply divine and with what I’m going to add to this sucker? It’s going to be a lovely little vintage upcycle to die for.
I’ll add some Russian tulle to the hat, across the front. I want it to fall across the face, about nose length. It will be able to be lifted up and worn that way too.
I’m going to add some feathers too, it’ll add a little height. Not sure about these feathers, though. Still thinking it through.
I think this little vintage rhinestone number will be involved too. I love the little dangly rhinestone bits on this one.
I can’t wait to finally figure out the rest of this hat. I imagine it on a bride who will wear a dress like this:
or maybe like this:
