A tiny update for a tiny top hat. My small mini to hats and the other small hats are actually rather big – about a third of the full-sized hats. Most fascinator hats you can buy are actually smaller and on request I build one like that as well. The hat is again half the size of ma mini hats, so a sixth of a full-sized hat.

I made the hate some time ago, but I just stumbled upon its picture. For comparison I have one of my normal small hats in the picture. Both are made from dark grey wool with a buckram base. The hat band and lining are black cotton twill. All my hats are sewn together, not glued, so the won’t fall apart after a while when the glue gives out.
