Headpiece

20170515_001307[1]Nothing like deadlines for finishing things. I needed this headpiece for a show, I was doing several numbers and wanted flowers in my hair for one of them. I had thought about it for quite a while an in the end I decided to use chicken wire for a base. That way I could bend it into shape and it would also be easy to fasten things onto it. I thought the sharp edges of the uncut wire would hurt me and/or eat their way through the covering fabric so I cut some leather to line it with., but that turned out to be too stiff and the wire alone actually worked fine.

The fabric is a velvety kind I had in my stash. I had originally thought of linen, but I didn’t have any, and as it turned out the velvety fabric was great since it held the headpiece in place without any bobby pins.

I didn’t have time to sew that many flowers onto the thing in the end, just one, but maybe some other time!

    • Och det bästa är att det bara råkade stå lite hönsnät på balkongen av oklar anledning och att det låg tyg i min jättelika stash. Inte en spänn kostade det:)
