I purchased this hat to wear in the sun, and fortunately the sun has just appeared over the last few days here in the UK. I did not like the original trim on the hat but really was pushed for time to make a new one. So I recycled the pew ends by sewing the button flowers on the ribbon at a different angle.
Not entirely happy with the result, may be it is a bit too bright? Also not sure that it suits the hat so did not go mad and put all the button flowers around it, instead spaced them out. I will look out for a suitable tatted pattern to work as a trim and may be finish it in time for next Summer.
This is what the hat looked like before, not very exciting.
Jane is back today and I might get a peep into her suitcase to see what she has purchased whilst she has been over the pond.
The title for this post came from a very old song sung by Stanley Holloway actually there is a kind of resemblance, I mean the hat not the person!
