The Most Dedicated Hat Wearer

For all the milliners, a true inspiration. The Queen celebrates her Diamond Jubilee and here we celebrate her undying dedication to the hat. That is 60 years of hats !
These images are a testament to the perfect colour balance that is 
achieved by the many working on her wardrobe.

Julie Fleming Melbourne scenes from the shop

Just had a stroll around the sunny shop today even though we are in Autumn we have had a lovely sunny day, crisp and cold outside but in the front room of the shop it is warm behind the glass. Also showing photo's of our 'beauty room' which is a calm oasis and soothing to the eye after the riot of colour in the shop.

Teal Velvet Headband

This is such a sensational colour you can see more photo's here

Making Tiny Straw Bow

I am making tiny little bow out of straw this is a trim on a summer straw I am just finishing. I love this sort of understated small trim as it sets the hat apart from the ordinary. This is a pari sisol straw in palest mint and I have trimmed with Italian straw off cuts in natural on the edge and around the crown.

I have been curling feathers today......

Alannah Hill Headband

This could be why I have been away from my blog....only 40 'cherry' and 40 'black' !!
 this is my cute design for Alannah Hill and I have JUST finished them **in store soon**

I used pure silk organza and a heavy silk to cover the bands and to make the bows. This silk is a dream to use mainly because it's SILK and what a sensational colour (Valentino Red) !

How to make a cage veil step by step

Step by step this is how to make a cage veil. You'll need to start with a quality Russian veiling one you know you can trust and to the astonishment of most of my students - PRESS IT (yep with an iron) if you do this it will be easier - you will need 'fairy fingers' and lots of time for this ! start by gathering up each end of the veiling and stitch in place.

Each end of the veiling should be secured tightly
(sparkle nail polish is an optional extra ;0)

take gathering thread from one side of the secured ends to the other side by carefully picking up the veiling from the edge, pull the gather thread in.

This is the brides hair comb and I will be attaching the veil to this, here I am deciding how much room I will need and how tight I will need to make the gathering. 

I am using my trust poupee and it helps to pin all in place to get an idea of how it is sitting - I also work with a mirror directly in front of me so I can see the other side of the poupee.

Hard to see but this is the stage where I will steam the veil to help 'set' the look (above).

As soon as I have the brides photo's I'll add them so that you can see the whole look.
