For Melbourne Cup day down here in Melbourne, we (the women that is) wore fascinators to tea that night. I made this flower fascinator following Simple Vintage Girl's tutorial and I loved how they turned out.
They were an absolute cinch to make and it was quite fun to burn fabric as well! I used an old full slip that I had planned to donate to Savers but I'm glad I had held on to it (my hoarding ways can be helpful at times). I made three flowers and attached them to the straps of the slip to
make 2 headbands.
It's a very cute and easy tutorial. I've seen these flowers all over the place recently. I think people are using chiffon or silk or something synthetic that curls with heat. Here are some links.
