Daring to cut into the basic brim shape of this lilac “Patience” hat gives it a dramatic appeal! The edging is then wired and welted with purple sinamay, which not only causes the design to stand out, but gives it a ‘wow’ factor. Both cut edges could be curled into any direction if desired (I chose to leave it as is for this piece). It has an interesting crown which is adorned with diamantes on the top half, and is finished off nicely with ruched crinoline and diamond buttons. Reinventing a boring brim surely adds flair!
