Two Part Top Hat Blocking

IMG_20190125_123138.jpg

During this Advanced Level Workshop Jennifer blocks a magenta felt over the brim block and the burgundy felt over the asymmetrical crown block, actually blocking two hats which will become one.

The magenta brim and burgundy crown will be paired together for an oversized Edwardian style hat. The magenta, gold and burgundy brocade fabric will be used to cover the outside of the brim and the top of the burgundy top hat crown as shown. Eventually the entire crown will be covered with the brocade. The felt brim and crown will be joined together to complete this dramatic hat.
