Mini Top Hat - A Midsummer Night's Dream

I, for one, I am dreaming of summer festivals, backyard lanterns and bare feet. I am so glad C came along with her gorgeous wedding details in Persian purple and monochromatic blues. Mosses, branches, whimsical bow ties for the boys and, of course, tea pots! (A girl after my own heart!)


I am fairly certain that every mother secretly wants to see her daughter in a veil. I wore two veils as I walked down the aisle to appease everyone. True story. To me: this french net is the perfect compromise. It is tucked within the flowers to give it natural, full look then cascades along the side and bottom of the brim to give the illusion and certainly the feel of wearing a bird cage veil. (I tried this on and gasped. I am now planning my 678th wedding..)



I created a ruffle from both dupioni silks to keep with the elegant feel C is going for. It also acts as a little flower cone for the spray of purple flowers. Details! Details!




It shouldn't be a hard transition today to work on Faerie hats for the festival!
p.s. - If you are in the Maryland area or are a faerie lovin', travelin' gnome: You get a FREE PASS to the Faerie Festival when you become a Two Back Flats fan on Facebook.
