Historically, a mainstay of fashionable dress in the United States, the hat has long been a way for all people to express themselves within fashionable protocols. Many different methods of hat making and hat designs exist, ranging from simple kerchiefs to the high fashion fascinators seen most frequently at British Royal weddings, and beyond. In addition to an exploration of social trends regarding hats and headwear, this project will include the process of making different hats and explain the process, from research and pattern development to a finished product.
