The Art of Millinery

Hello all!

For the past month or two (I can't remember lol) I've been taking a millinery class on Saturdays. For all of you unfamiliar with the term "Millinery", it's the proper term for hat making.

A few Saturdays ago, I finished my first hat! It's a velour fedora I made for my grandfather.

Making hats is definitely a lot harder than what I thought it would ever be! But it's extremely rewarding in the end. (:

I still can't believe I made this hat!! (:

Hope all of you are having a wonderful Monday!



  1. Get outta here... It's so $%*^#@ awesome!!!! :) This is the coolest thing I've seen! Your grandfather looks so handsome with the fedora you made. I had no idea what "millinery" was until now, and girl... you're doing great at it! Can I keep my fingers crossed and hope there will be a blog entry in the future about what you've learned in hat-making? :) <3

  2. Wow, this is so impressive! Love it!!!

  3. Awesome work, Allie!! I'm one of your biggest fans!! :)

  4. Allie: Thanks!!! :D I will do a post with more information sometime after I finish my course! (:

    Marie: Aww thanks!

    Aunt Liz: Aww thank you! (:

  5. Cool !!! Grandpa looks cool too :) x
