Fascinator workshop!

Yesterday I attended the fascinator workshop I signed up to take at the Boston Vintage Factory!

I had a lot of fun, and found Kristen to be knowledgeable and very engaging to learn from. She went into some of the history of the style, as well as the techniques and materials. I feel like I learned a lot about the craft of it, and I really enjoyed experimenting with actually making a fascinator. Here it is on my (unfortunately headless) dress form Adelaide.

There were so many cool milinery trims that I wanted to use all of them! But I particularly liked this sprig of red berries and so built things around that. But I was sorely tempted by the feathers and tiny little bird models. I'm not sure what I made is all that excellent an example, in fact it might be kind of tacky, but I like it all the same. Hey, it's a first try!

Here it is on my head.

And here's a shot that came out really badly but I like the angle of it, so I'm posting it anyway.
