Established milliner Elsie Collins stuns us again with a graceful red felt cloche. Firstly you can see her love of anything vintage. Her hand work is faultless. Appreciate the hand made blossoms. The rolled hem surrounding the brim gives a smooth finish. Learn how to hem felt in lesson 19. Bands are often just seen as functional to hide the join position for the crown and brim. The composition & style of this red band adds to the total design. Lesson 5 details a number of ways to make a band a trim feature. Elsie approaches every new hat as a blank canvas for creativity.
