How to Make A Homemade Fascinator Hat
By: Kathleen Lisson
I love handmade millinery. For the crafty ladies among us, here is a video by milliner Janie Lawson on how to make a fascinator hat.
I liked watching this video because I learned how much time and creativity goes into making a hat - giving me more respect for my favorite milliners!
Lawson shows all the different aspects of creating a hat, including the part where she sews a comb on the back. This is a great tip for repairing a hat with a loose comb.
My favorite part of the video was where Lawson attaches the veiling. I have a few vintage hats that aren't my style but do have beautiful veiling. I am now considering whether to repurpose the vintage veiling and add it to one of my fascinators to make a seductive veiled cocktail hat!
