- Jan 11, 2008Thank you for the larger images, I find and save my inspirations to my
hard drive and then can't reference others to them when I start doing
the research. Do art historians know which came first? I always assumed
the second one listed because of the "crisper" image.
I was looking at the second image specifically for my inspiration. I see
that shape as having a flat top, but I believe that the hat retains it's
shape when off the head.
The regular pattern on the body of the hat suggests pattern-woven fabric
to me, rather than embroidery.
I have formal training in constructing hat frames, the daunting part is
getting the shape right. Since I would like to have this for 12th night,
I was hoping to use the Cliffs Notes of someone else's research. I
suppose creating the research will be my after-work-settles-down
I do think it's interesting that his garment looks to be gathered at the
shoulder on the front body. The sleeve appears to have a cap stiffener,
looking with my bridal gown eye.
