Hat for my lovely sister

I am not as diligent in my hat making as i should be so I am beginning again. As we all have done making hats for friends and family is a perfect way to start building up confidence and belief. So for my sister's birthday I offered to make her a hat as she was off to a big wedding. For once she didn't want black, but the vibrant colours of orange, pink and purple - a challenge.

Beginnings
The dress
As i may have mentioned before Sinamay isn't my favourite though I accept its potential, I prefer Pinok Pok but this is often difficult to come by. But key to all this as a milliner is not my own sentiments and desires but those of the client. My sister wanted something wow but not too OTT that was elegant and bespoke for her outfit.
Working out some variations
She loved it Phew.
