Fairy Fingers

Have just used my 'fairy fingers' to make this beautiful biscuit coloured straw up - have made for a stylist so am hoping that I have some nicer than average photo's of the finished product to show you in the near future. But in the mean time for all the milliners craving a look at something new...this straw is monumentally hard to come by now. I have a little stack of these beautiful vintage pari buntels and couldn't resist trimming in the exact same colour Italian (Milan) straw for the crown and the edge. This very delicate and slightly brittle straw required my 'fairy fingers' which was taught to me in London at Philip Somerville all those years ago !

Scenes from the Shop

A beautiful, clear, cold winter day in Melbourne and here are some photo's I took this morning in the lovely early morning light. The shop manages to get all the winter sun and so the light is wonderful.

The Finished Hat

Finished the black hat with contrast stitching , have added faux patent headband and finished the brim with some velvet. This is the first time I have used the new stretch velvet to edge a brim and I think that although it is way easier to get a good edge the colour is not quite black enough to my liking although no one else would notice but to my eye it is just not black/black. Added a lining that matched the stitching which is a nice touch and unexpected. Note the double brim so that I only have the detail stitching on the top, just another detail which is probably lost on many (but not me) !
