Friday hat IV

To be honest, there was no hat Friday last weekend.  Hubby was not feeling well and after work, we went straight home ....

  However, I wanted to share with you some photos of the hat I intended to use this Friday,remember that it is made ​​from pants that came with this jacket.

   I used it to line silk shantung, I like the contrast between the tweed and silk, such as water and fire ....

   Actually make the hat took about two hours total, I used interface on the rim of up turned hat.

The funny thing for me is to sew a strip of braid around the brim of the hat, (I love hand sewing ...) and repeat this on the edge of the lapels of his jacket  and pockets.

   I imagine wearing this jacket with a burgundy skirt .... a skirt just below the knee ....maybe a skirt with panels that widen at the bottom of it .... all together, the suit with hatand my hair curly .... an image that evokes the turn of the century fashion .. 
However, all this suit will go straight to the closet, because the weather is too hot to wear it.
So it's best to go for the hat next Friday ....
 I have a plan to use the necklace that I made ​​last week.  Meanwhile, have a great week ... please.

  7. Hi there,

    that is so lovely! I just discovered your blog and I think that you look great and always very smart and distinguished! Love your style and am in awe of your handmade dresses. I started sewing last year and I'm hoping to make my own dresses after vintage patterns soon. Your blog is a huge inspiration!


  8. I love your hat. These flowers so lovely on it.
    Hand sewing my favourite, too. :-)

  9. Hello Rosy, I LOVE your hat and jacket. Here in New Zealand it is early Autumn and the leaves are starting to change to gold and red, and your jacket and hat would be perfect to wear for a walk in the park with someone special. I can't read or speak spanish but I recognise the name Coco Chanel in Maria's comment and of course Coco designed hats before she designed clothes. I think your hat is gorgeous.
