Bisected

So I finished the bicorn construction last night.  I still need to trim it up (and line it) but I'm pretty happy with it.  I also have to figure out if I'm wearing it athwart (side to side) or "fore-and-aft."  I'll take some pics when the trimming  is finished and let you help me decide. 

Since it is such an odd hat I took a picture of the side view before the final side brim was added so you can get an inside view of how this whole thing goes together. 

It's a hat that needs quite a bit more steaming and shaping of the buckram than I'm used to get the swooping shape it needs.

  1. I'm envious of you being able to create your own hat shapes. I've tried it a bit but have a long ways to go.
