About my project: This hat is a “plague project” – I did it all out of supplies in my stash so I didn’t need to order or go to stores in person, as such it uses modern materials. I wanted to make a hat for my lord to complete his 1560s outfit and fortunately I had some leftover cut velvet, canvas, and satin from making that project. I am not a haberdasher so this was something of an adventure. 

I looked at a few paintings from period (such as https://denverartmuseum.org/object/TL-18918 ) as my inspiration and made a simple circular brim which I stiffened with glue and canvas. I pleated the top of the cap into the band, stitched it down with back-stitch, then tacked in a satin lining. Finally I rolled the velvet over and stitched it down to cover the raw edges of the canvas and lining. Overall I am very happy with it, though for my next try I would like to try to learn more about period hat construction.

We hope this example helps! If you have any questions about what to include please reach out to moas.deputy@eastkingdom.org and I would love to talk about it. Any project you are working on, big or small, new or old, would be more than welcome.

Art brings joy and inspiration, thank you for sharing yours with us all <3
