Fold up the brim and pin it to the crown, using a hat pin or whatever other means you wish, and tuck the ostrich plume into the hat band. You might even want to pin the plume in place (say that three times fast.). Add whatever else you want on the form of decoration/
I hope you enjoyed making this Cavalier' Hat from scratch as much as I enjoyed making this project to help you. Please write back, and tell me how things worked out. If you have any questions, e-mail me and I will be happy to help you further.
Now that you have tried out this free offer, take a moment to order the Doublet/Jerkin with Breeches, and Renaissance Shirt Projects I offer in the other project booklets. These are patterns I have developed myself after seven years of researching and assembling costumes. I have made the very garments you will make, and have designed them to be simple, rugged, and stylish.
Rush your order via e-mail right away. Maybe I'll see you at the Faire.
Fare thee well!
