Vintage Tulle Bow Headband

Just the in's and out's of the perfect bow, one of my students calls me 'The Queen of Bows' and the best results are achieved by hand gathering.... slow but the results are usually perfect, here are some that I made this week.
Many of you will see my favorite colour here in this nude vintage tulle. I have mounted these tulle bows onto copper metal bands as the patina looks great with the nude.
Am also making big bows in navy blue velvet for winter for a wholesale customer and I'll post them as soon as they are in store. Navy velvet is sensational and hard to beat - tricky to work with but luckily I have a very good quality German cotton backed velvet which is practically making itself..

Beautiful Panama Straws have arrived

These are direct from Ecuador and we have them every summer. The styles this year are great for total sun block, we have a superalone (super soft) very large ladies brim - think big and glamorous, in natural bleached colour as well as black. Standard 'classic' men's Borsalino shape is really a versatile shape for men and women. These are the finest, softest panamas we have ever had.

Spring Racing 2010

A hat for the new season.

I love the way it curves around the head.
The texture of the vintage cherry coloured straw
and the bright pink feathers adds a dimension that I adore.

Sewing the head fitting in place .

Some hefty hand sewing through several layers to keep
all nicely tucked under the head fitting..

Deciding where the support detail will go as I don't
really want it seen from the front or back - tricky. Can't see it from front (above)
and will live with the small amount I can see from the back.

Curving the piece of straw I have decided to use as a
support for the feathers.

I ran a gather thread through the straw to pull the inner side
in tight so it would curve to fit the feathers and hopefully not
be seen from the front or back.
I then hit the curved straw with the iron and wet rag
to make it a permanent curve. Magic.

Just realizing that the feather will need some
support.....although I had backed it in some pale pink felt.
Here I am assessing how wide and how long the curved
piece of straw needs to be.

Woo hoo new season is here ! although it is still freezing outside! Just adding the finishing touches to a design for the shop and available here. Complex little hat in the end which started out when I found a cherry coloured a piece of vintage strip straw and just adored the bright cherry colour . The shape grew, then the silk flowers, then the feather trim, then that needed support and it seemed to go on and on, but finally here is the result.

Real Life Bride - Kate

Some charming candid guest photo's have just arrived from Kate of her wedding on Santorini, Greece. Wow, what a stunning bride she made, her little silver sequin floral headpiece I made for her looks beautiful, such a wonderful backdrop for a wedding - the deep blue sea. The couple look so fabulously happy !

Latest Bridal

Just love our new faux leather flowers, here starring in a bridal headpiece I have just finished. I have used a very delicately patterned vintage veiling. We also have this super leatherette flower in black (for the bridesmaids). Buy it here.
