I'm fairly pleased with the trimming of silk and organza that I added to the wedding hat yesterday.

The first picture is better for colour. I kept the navy blue ribbon and removed the bow then added flowers in white and pale blue organza with pale blue silk flowers (to match the dress), with pearl beads on the stamens. The leaves are a darker blue to bring together the colour of the hat and flowers. The brim is a little deformed but an inexpensive charity shop hat with added trimming is looking good enough for a wedding.

The hat looks smashing! Aren't you clever!

I adore hats and am amazed at how you've made this look a million dollars.

Thank you. I was quite pleased with the result. It was all in getting the colour and texture of the flowers righ. The rest was a doddle - just sew them into place.

Could you see me at Ascot in this?
