A Bergere

I’ve decided to make a fairly over-done Bergere hat.

Inspired by these particular hats:

A reproduction from Kyoto.

A reproduction by Reine des Centfeuilles

This original from the V&A

I’ve come up with a “Best (worst?)-of”, conceptually.


Before you knock my concept illustration: this also doubles as my embroidery pattern which is super-neat.

I decided keep it in a celadon/mint-green with white accents, otherwise I might end up blinding people with my millinery work.

It looks fairly busy already (and I have barely done anything in real life!) and I still want to add bows and feathers.
