Hats and things

I had grand ideas of having a Grand Opening for my etsy shop...and then realized that wouldn't be til next year sometime, as I'm such a slow sewer!

Anywhoodle, I like making hats and accessories and things (have you noticed?), so I finally got round to opening an Etsy shop - both for the aforementioned Hats and Things, and for a few very old costumes that I'll never wear again, but are too nice to pick apart or donate.

No outfits that date to within the span of this blog, though! Not yet...

I'll post hats and things here as I get round to listing them - they'll also be listed under the new "Accessories" tab at the top, with links as long as they're available. I'm still feeling out what people might like to actually spend money on, so I'll probably have one of each style in the next few weeks. I'm mainly going to focus on 1750-1820ish, as that's what I know most about, and like to make the most! Suggestions and/or comments from persons in the accessories-buying market are welcome. ;)

  1. OOH that cap is a gorgeous, ruffly confection! Someone is going to be incredibly happy & stylish! I'm interested in seeing some ruffly 1820s caps down the road...happy sewing!

    1. Thank you! And thanks for the suggestion, too - I've been kicking around the idea of 1820s/30s caps for my own nefarious purposes, so maybe I'll bump them up in the production line. :D
