New Jackie O inspired Pill Box Hat in Cream
Angelique is modeling my newest Jackie O hat. It is made from a previously loved wool/angora sweater that I felted. It measures 22/23 inches. With this hat I sewed a sturdy interfacing so the hat keeps it's shape. The rosettes are made from poi de soi vintage 1966 wedding dress that my Mother wore. For an added sparkle there are the cute little vintage flowers from a deconstructed bracelet I purchased from Paperhill.
To clean & store the hat wipe down with a clean cotton cloth that has been rung out from a solution of vinegar & water. My Grandmother always used this method to clean & store her woolens.
