Well, I committed a serious faux pas at my stepbrother's wedding. His aunt opened up her multi-million dollar home for the event and had her garden completely redone so they could have a garden wedding. Since it was going to be in the garden, I bought a hat to wear to protect me from the sun. I didn't have a hatpin so I used a hairpin. Big Mistake! Okay, so I didn't have a hatpin. And the hairpin was very nice, much nicer than any hat pin there.
Before I make this mistake again, does anyone know where I could find a pattern for a hatpin end that isn't too difficult (i'm an upper level beginner)? I've thought about using the earring jackets pattern then creating a center to go on the pin part. Heck, I'm not even sure what I could use to make a hatpin - maybe a lapel stick pin?
Should the opportunity arise again, I'd like to wear my hat like a proper lady.
