High Fashion Fascinator/Headpiece
Happy Valentine Day!
Get ready for Ascot, your wedding, church next Sunday
or just wear one for fun.
I had this idea for a fascinator when I was mathematically
working out a regular hat brim, so I played around and made these
three fascinators showing the same pattern and different
looks. This one I made for my daughter Kim for her Valentine gift.
Ooh La La! This piece will inspire you to make pieces that will
match your outfits or for an upcoming fashion show.
This is a great piece to wear for that simple wedding.
Here you can see the Valentine fascinator up close. I topped it
with a bow I made from some lovely red heart netting with glitter
on the edges of the hearts. I added a large red rhinestone in
the center of the bow.
You can wear this fascinator at any angle on your head.
I used a combination of fabrics to make this piece.
First some hot pink velvet to cover the crown and outer brim, black satin
for the inner brim and crown and both black and hot pink French
netting to make the large bow.
Here you can see the black satin and hot pink velvet more clearly.
I kept this one all white using white on white patterned taffeta for
the inside brim lining and top crown. I used white crushed velvet
to cover the outer brim. The trim was simple. A large French veil
bow and two sheer organza ribbon roses in the center of the bow.
This photo shows you the covered frame before trimming and
you can see the patterned inner fabric and crushed velvet
brim. I used a simple hair clip to attach it to the head.
If you love this design and would love to make some of these
unique fascinators, you can purchase the tutorial with patterns
for $15.95. My tutorials are photographed step by step so that
you can follow along regardless of your design experience.
