Easy sew trim

Last week I went along to a 1940's event at the Hebden Bridge W.I. which was great fun with victory rolls and kiss curl hair do's and me with vintage inspired hats and headbands.
This was a little easy to sew project that I made to show how easy it is to make a little trim to add to your hat using very little. (as would have been true in the 40's)
Made with 3 biot feathers, a vintage button, petersham ribbon and a brooch pin.
When it's sewn together add it to a hat or coat collar for an instant trim.

Softly curved wire trim

I found this soft silk and cotton covered wire at a ribbon suppliers and have wanted to use it for some time. This large navy blue saucer gave me the perfect opportunity to create a simple yet effective trim. I also had a small piece of taffeta to use as a trim on the mini silk clutch bag and the hat.
The little clutch bag has pleats in the front and the back to create a flared bottom, just enough for essentials.

Glossy Black Classic

A 1920's inspired brimless hat [not for you if you have a round face] with a beautiful glossy black feather, wrapped with lilac dupion silk and you can just see the white para sisal blocked crown at the top. It was teamed with a black suit and lilac accessories. The lady also found a pair of 'Mary Jane' style shoes in a vintage shop that fit too.! Normally they are about size 3 if you are lucky.
