A window into the chaos of my millinery and the paths that I follow to make sense of developing a sustainable venture around hats.

Hat for my lovely sister
I am not as diligent in my hat making as i should be so I am beginning again. As we all have done making hats for friends and family is a perfect way to start building up confidence and belief. So for my sister's birthday I offered to make her a hat as she was off to a big wedding. For once she didn't want black, but the vibrant colours of orange, pink and purple - a challenge.
As i may have mentioned before Sinamay isn't my favourite though I accept its potential, I prefer Pinok Pok but this is often difficult to come by. But key to all this as a milliner is not my own sentiments and desires but those of the client. My sister wanted something wow but not too OTT that was elegant and bespoke for her outfit.
