Hattie Goodness

Listening to Mark Lanegan as I type this.


Ive almost finished with my cloche for the depression picnic later this month. Im using a rather stiff linen for the outside and lining, but because the colors were so stark, I interfaced the hat with a cotton to keep the blue bright, and the cream crisp.

With this cloche, as opposed to the others I have done, I raised the back quite a bit, almost making it bonnet like. That way my hair can squish out the back and wont hinder my neck movements. I also curved the sides down more, tear drop like.


Ive seen that look on so many other hats, I wanted to try it.


I kept the pleats, I do like them so, but with the band, I also did some pleats, and some hand stitching in blue.


I was going to sew it in a matching thread of the cream color, but I think the blue stitching is a nice touch.


I may add a flower to it. I haven't decided yet. Ill finish it tomorrow, early.
