This handmade silk pill can be made ideally with dupion silk, or any spare fabric you have left over (I need at least 20 cms of fabric length to make the matching roses and cover the pill top and inside.
Please note a very fine satin or thin manmade fabric may not work as it may be too thin to work with and needs to be able to withstand high heat and steam during production.
Thick tweed wool fabrics will work but result in a heavier product both to look at and to wear.
If you do not have much fabric to spare ie a small amount from the hem of a dress only -this can be used for some of the petals within the flowers and a matching silk can be used for the rest of the hat. We can make this from a selection of over 60 beautiful colours.
The pill is stitched onto a fine clear alice band that can be hidden by your hair.
