Finally I have a few photos to share which I took quickly before the pieces were packed away for delivery. The new pieces are currently a part of a spring racing exhibiton at Wyreena until Saturday November 5th. I am quite happy with the way they turned out and have found a new love for working with colours. The exhibition also gave me the push to start focusing more on my flower making as it’s clearly my favourite part of Millinery. So expect to see more flowers! Making the boater was my biggest challenge as I had to stitch a lot of it by hand as it didn’t always fit under my sewing machine. The straw I used to make the boater came from a lovely vintage haberdashery store called Luccello in Melbourne and all the flowers were made from white cotton.

love the way this butterfly turned out, but didn’t love the finger cramps it took to make it!! Apparently I need to build up my finger muscles…. hand dyed and cut from cotton.

A simple band, topped with five hand dyed and shaped hibiscus flowers. I need to update this photo as I have now added some crystals to the stamen tips.
