hatting

Not terribly productive today, but I did cut the flannel for mulling (three different colors LOL), and the main fabric for the hat. Which, since I happened to pull some scraps of velveteen out of the bin while I was digging for flannel, is going to be said velveteen rather than the hunter/navy silk. It's a kind of chestnut-brown cotton velveteen - and is the remnants of my second-ever dyeing project, ten years old at this point! I honestly don't remember what I originally wanted to do with it, but the scraps are the remnants of gored, awfully French-seamed panels. So, some kind of skirt thing?? Most of it ended up being a tragically-fitted 1570s doublet at one point, I do remember that.

So I had just enough to squeak out the fabric for this hat! An amusing end to that fabric, I think.
