Transformation - Jane Austen goes to Sorrento Linen Sun Hat
of late, I find myself wanting to embellish mass-produced garments or
objects to turn them into one-of-a-kind pieces, and mostly to give them
a new and possibly better life.
I have been working on some hats and other headgear, transforming each piece with Jane Austen as a common theme or rather inspiration.
The basis for this hat is a plain linen sun hat, dark beige with a cotton lining, and a flower decoration.
I added all the ribbons, trims, buttons and beadwork.
The crown of the hat measures 7 inches in diameter, and the rim is 4.5" wide.
The transformation work is all hand stitched.
This is the perfect hat for the Winter getaway you might be planning... or for next summer...
