I have made quite a number of hats and headpieces for weddings: some for the bride, some for the mother-of-the-bride, one for the grandmother-of-the-groom. So when I received the following project, I was happy to try something new. The top hat below was to be worn by the groom.
Two youngsters were in the small wedding party and it was decided that they should wear similar hats. These hats were fun to make and I had to call on some millinery techniques that I don’t often use, like making a grosgrain ribbon brim edge. Here are a few photos of the hat in progress and the finished products. These little men look so cute!
