This summer, I knew I would be attending the High Style exhibit at the Legion of Honor.
I have been meaning to make a version of Vogue 8276 for years, and this was just the push I needed. Of course, I was temped to make a whole new outfit for the occasion, but that is just silly when I have so many dresses that deserve a day out.
In June of 2014 I managed to finish this dress for a symphony event, but there was just not enough time to make a hat. So the pattern was put away . . . again.
Without a specific event, it seemed silly to make such a head covering. (This style of hat is a little too much for a day at work, even for me!)
It is perfect, however, for an afternoon at a museum.
Although, a windy day in San Francisco does make for an interesting hat wearing experience!
