“victorian” top hat

I’ve been working on a Victorian themed dress, and this is the top hat I made to go with it. It’s not perfect, but it is completely from scratch and it’s the first I’ve ever made. I’d like to have a sculptural element in some of my designs, so it’s good for me to “craft” something instead of just sewing all the time. (I haven’t lined the inside yet, so you can see that I made it out of an old Urban Outfitters shopping bag.)
