DIY: Baroque Snapback

I recently bought a fabric that I decided to put on a hat but then after I saw this top at the thrift store I changed my mind. I had already begun working on it by the time I figured I would take a picture so you could see it. It was a women’s sheer top with gold embroidery. There is a brocade trend this fall & this was the perfect way to get that in my wardrobe in a unique way. Broacdes were seen on everybody who was somebody back in the renaissance days. I’m not big on grabbing attention but I do love the regal and sophisticated look although I don’t care to a dress with it all over, small doses you know.

As much as I’d like to give you instructions on making your own it was fairly simple (to me at least) but time consuming. To sum it up, I used masking tape to make a pattern of the panels and brim. I then cut the fabric using my pattern tape and began to sew it on the actual hat. I used a regular needle and long-nosed pliers to help pull the needle when things got difficult. You can choose to sew using the stitch the hat already has as a guide or do your own thing. I bent the hat up to give it a 90’s feel… I love the 90s lol. It still needs a little touching up if you ask me but other than that it’s finished.

What do you think?
