As for ‘My Lady’s’ hat, that had to be the same as her dress. Here is how it was made.
A small piece of vilene coloured and covered with the material. I then placed chiffon over the top of a wooden cap, and glued into place on top of the hat.
Here are the pieces of the hat:
Clockwise from top left: Material, ribbon, Vilene with circle for hat, wooded cap on top of the chiffon (same as the petticoat).
I think it looks great hooked up in the tree.
