Fabulous! Made to look so easy...
on 20 November 2016
The book is full of great photography and clear step by step instructions for 14 fascinator projects, beginning with easy, intermediate, then leading on to the more advanced.
The projects are worked with Sinamay, crin, veiling, flowers, petals and feathers.
Techniques explained include feather dying, sculpting, moulding bias strip, making bows, flowers and petals, rolled edges, and wiring.
I purchased this book as a gift for my mum, who at 80 years old, recently confided to me it had been her lifelong dream to become a milliner, but after winning a scholarship to Art College at 14, her parents needed her to go out to work and earn money. Mum was over the moon with this book and has made a couple of lovely fascinators for her friends as gifts.
I love this book so much I ordered a second copy for myself.
