...........not me. Uh oh. I have received my hat back from the Musee du Chapeau competition saying not a winner although I received a letter with my hat there isn't any clear indication as to why. So I'm none the wiser. I just have to console myself with the fact that this was an international competition and it's only my first go.
In the future I will send a photograph and an explanation of my influences and relevance to the chosen theme. As it wasn't asked of me I didn't include it this time, so this could be part of my problem.
I'm not 100% happy with a few of the elements of my hat. Firstly the scarf isn't as beautiful and luxurious as I had hoped. It's a bit stiff and doesn't sit as I had hoped. In future I would cut it in the bias. Secondly the lining wasn't quiet right, it is too small so it doesnt sit right to the top of the hat.
Chin up and carry on :)
