Downton Abbey Inspired Hats

This week these two felt cloches have been made by my interns Fran and Josie. I started them off with steaming and stretching the top of the felt over a domed crown block then once it had taken shape I showed them how to steam, pinch and pleat the felt to create a cloche hat.Each hat has a very organic shape yet hugs the head with and upturned brim. They have caused quite a stir in the shop window this weekend and are on several ladies Christmas wish list. This week we shall make more in different colours. Great job ladies.
