Ribbon Beret Live Lesson

Included with Studio+

Regular price $50.00 AUD

DESCRIPTION

Drawing on her knowledge of 1920s ribbon cockades, Louise Macdonald reveals clever ribbon twisting and folding techniques to cover a pre-blocked button beret. The result is a gorgeous contemporary trans-seasonal headpiece. You'll learn how to prepare, measure, fold, set and transfer the manipulated ribbon to the 3-dimensional beret form, before stitching into position – effective in plain or striped ribbon.

TUTOR

Louise trained in London, UK as a theatrical milliner making hats for productions such as Pride and Prejudice and House Of Elliot. Since returning to Melbourne Australia in 1995 she began making fashion pieces and now her millinery year is dominated by the Melbourne Cup.
