  1. I can always count on the millinery beauty here HQ!
    Just a note on the second linked hat, the pink leather percher. https://www.millinerymarket.com/en/listings/552529 The milliner is My Hat Millinery, of Brisbane https://www.facebook.com/myhatmillinery/, not Milano Imai. Though I am sure Ms Imai would be honoured to be thought a milliner. Her name is there as the host of the site Millinery Marketplace where the hat is featured; it’s an online store popular among Australian racing fashion enthusiasts because a range of Australian millinery can be viewed in one location.

  2. I really love the “Hope” sign of Yuan Li! It is worth looking up the making-of video on her Instagram account, it is so clever and perfectly well made.
    Thank you for featuring my ribbon pleating berets, Hat Queen. Berets, whether perching or floppy, provide a perfect canvas for all kinds of techniques and embellishments as proved in your recent post!

  3. Wonderful photos of the Norwegian Royals and I quite like the portrait of Queen Elizabeth. It’s a great depiction.

    – Great ribbon work on the berets Wies! The patterns are wonderful! How great would Princess Laurentien look in these?
    – Another great beret from Katoushi. The pael slate blue wold look divine on Beatrice Borromeo.
    – I love the black and tan woven boater with statement bow by Felicity Gee. This would chic on Princess Marie.
    – I love the sleek petrol blue felt fedora with side knot by American milliner Laura Del Villaggio. It would look great on Princess Benedikte.

  4. I am intrigued by the Jennifer Hoertz beret. Yes, the main part is woven, but my knitter’s eye detects knit ribbing in the band, I believe. An intriguing use of roving.

    Wies, your berets are remarkable. I love that ribbon work!
