"Thank you Kathy.  The feathers are "wide prime femina ostrich"  and they are anywhere from24-30 inches long.  They are soft and full but to make them fuller I sew 2 or more together at the tips. I also double curl them as…"

Victoria Regina replied to ciara sweeney's discussion Buckram for a Cocktail Hat
"Hi Ciara, Just to add to what Bridget said. I use buckram a lot & its very simple to use. I can see where there can be confusion because it can be called out by the count or the ply.  One-ply is the standard and it comes in light, medium or…"

"Thank you Elaine. I will definitely give it a try. I've never used a block like this before so I didn't know if the indentations were part of the design or not."

"I would so love to play with this block if it was mine. I love the indentations. If you removed them you might as well use a regular Breton block. If this was my own block the first thing I would do is remove the flat board base and extend the legs…"

"I am not sure what you mean but if you don't want the indentations do not use the presser and just the bottom brim block.  When blocking make sure you tie off tight enough to not have the felt, or what ever you are using, sink into the…"

"I do not know the name of the block but it looks to be a 1940s style.  The smaller piece is to be turned over and used inside the matching curves.  This will give a wonderful dimension to the blocked felt, fabric, straw, or buckram. …"

Profile Information

I Love Hats Because?
At a young age, Victoria cultivated a delight for hats. Summer trips back to England meant hat shopping for various celebrations. She remembers fondly the adventure of going to London and walking through forests of hats to choose from. It was this fascination that finally lead to a deep interest in millinery.
About Me
It was during her studies in architecture and engineering that she came to understand that with an understanding of materiality, one’s options are unlimited. This has followed her into her career as a couture milliner that passionately upholds the traditions of millinery, while redefining classic headwear, challenging conventions and technique alike.
