I took more photographs of making the purple hat because it is easier to see what I'm doing in the darker colors. But the white hat is made the same way.
The wire is what makes this hat look and feel professional. It gives the outer edge substance and allows the hat to be bent slightly to conform to the shape of the head.
Use a hand running stitch to sew it down next to the bias binding, just covering the ribbon that gathered the net.
I found a curved needle made this job much easier.
Enough for this time. Next time trimming this hat and making and trimming the one with the big cluster of roses.
