Ok, so I know this is a pretty unusual design. I was going abstract….but actually it’s the technique that I love about this one!
Ok, so the base of this is a red tartan fascinator base; and the design is then covered in straw spirals that vary in thickness. This starts as a big reel of thin straw that I’ve then sewn in different quantatities to create different sizes of spirals. Technically this is a really difficult piece to make. And that’s why I love it because it took me forever!!!
You can actually see me sewing it here in this picture:
Anyway…..you’d have to be quite a daring person to wear this I think. But here it is 🙂
