Hi! Helen, I have been asked to make a fascinator similar to your, not sure where to start as the one the lady wants is more of a large circle but the curve bends at the front and back so more like and orange which has been peeled.  Could you advise if I just cut the sinamay on the bias about 5 inches wide then block it on a large circular block , wire up each side and then bend into shape?  Any help would be appreciated.   I am not copying your style as I know styles can be precious.  Shelagh

Hi! Helen, sorry I didn't reply but my customer changed her mind before I could try it.

I wasn't sure what you meant by a batter non dress making paper, could you enlighten me please.
