Milinery
Have done asearch, but couldn't find a thread for this. (Please merge if there is)

Has anyone here made hats/hair accessories? I want to make some hats & fascinators, but can't find any patterns, or better still, personal advice on how to do it. Had a look for a part-time course, but they are well expensive, so thought tfs would be an even better way of learning.

I found a site called 'Cut Out & Keep' (worth a look at) and they had instructions for making a fascinator. Here's my version - I added a silk orchid & some feathers as well as the netting

i wish i could help you, feline ^^
i have some interest in millinery myself
some time ago in a course i took, a classmate of mine made a cap out of fabric she made out of Tencel. it was quite nice, i wanted to ask her about what she put in to the "visor" part of the cap, to make it stiff. i saw some white wire things at a sewing shop here and they were labelled 'buckram' but probably made of plastic. i think
unfortunately i don't have her contact info now

how do you put the fascinator on your head?

Quick story! When I was taking fashion design classes, the teacher asked about the interest in a millinery (BTW, change the spelling for search purposes...) class.

I signed up for this! Sounded like machining something, something technical, as I used to build racecars back in the day.

Anyway, I found out what it was and backed off. No disrespect to the art, I was just mislead.

Millinery = CNC Mill? No.

PS: Google is your friend:

Seems like it's more draping on your head than patterns.

how about a hood?

you can just add something inside to reinforce the shape.
i have a pattern for a loose hood i can post.
You use the back and front bodice patterns to make it.

loose hood pattern
here we are.

it will look this.
it doesn't conform to the shape of the head
rather drapes out.. like a triangle.
