I was asked to officiate/MC at a circus themed wedding, so I thought it would be fun to wear a tophat, kind of like the ringmaster. After trying on a few tophats in a store, I decided I was better off with a tophat fascinator. I have a funny face and large head, which results in me looking like a freak of nature in hats most of the time, trust me. Anyway, etsy searches turned up these ones, that I fell in love with.
Love it! But not so much the price though, $96 ? Ouch. So of course I decided to make my own, and thought I would share the pattern.
NOTE: this pattern/tut is for PERSONAL USE ONLY. Please do not sell tophats you make from this pattern. I took my idea from someone who is selling it, we should at least show her some respect by not competing with her.
If you make one of these, please please send me a picture! I would love to see what people come up with.
