I was very lucky to be asked to make a fascinator for a lovely lady for Ascot this year. Once we had established she would have to dress for the Royal Enclosure this is the design I came up with.
Firstly I blocked three leaf shapes using three layers of sinamy and wired them ready to be covered in pale gold silk. I then embellished the leaves with gold coloured bugle beads.
WIRED AND HEMMED
The feathers I used vary in style there are narrow, coq and curled goose biot feathers which have been steamed, curled and shaped by hand. It is attached to a clear come and elastic.

She was very happy with her fascinator and I hope she had a wonderful day and won a few pennies too.
