I know you are all very anxious to see what is happening with the princess hats so here is an update. The hats are decorated and veiled. Here is a closeup of a few of the five blue ones.
The five green ones are also decorated and veiled. Here is the group.
I finished decorating the five red ones tonight.
Oh, and my Bride was over today. She tried on the interlining of her bodice. I just have to move the grommets over 1/2 inch on both sides. We laced her up using the ugly fitting straps. So, tomorrow while the outer material, a beautiful lipstick red cotton, is being pre-shrunk, I'll move the grommet channel over one and add a boning channel to the side.
I also cut the silk, brocade and interfacing for the stomacher for my Merchant Garb.
Busy day and more to come tomorrow. Faire season is upon us and I'm very excited.
