Klaire’s Wardrobe: Brenton Sailing Cap

One seriously annoying thing about having a large head is that finding ay kind of hat to fit you is a right pain in the neck. The only thing more annoying than that is when people don’t believe you, graduation uniform guy…I’m looking at you!

My parents were absolutely lovely and got this for my birthday recently. I’d been eying it for months since realising they (ebay) had it in my size, 60-61 cm, but I wanted to make a few little changes.

I’m not a fan of plastic. Hate the feel of it and I don’t particuallarly appreciate how it looks. 

I’ve had this old coat for year where I’d changed the buttons to these beautiful silver buttons. Recently it finally died on me after months of hobbling on and rough patch-ups, and I though the buttons would be perfect to move onto the cap.

Yea, as you can see I’m really happy with the results! :) Now I just need to figure out what to do with the remaining four buttons…hehe…maybe buy a few more caps?

    you could put three of the buttons onto a shirt with a high neckline and put some ruffles aroun d :)

    Ahah I feel you on the big head thing, 59 cm here and going strong XD I’ve pretty much given up on hats :)But yours looks adorable! <3

    I have always had the same problem!
    If you’re looking for a fancy hat, try m&s. despite the fact I have a rather large head, their hats often have some thinking room ;)

    I’m hoping to do a dark arts project for the summer, would I be able to use some of your photos to draw from?

    funny you have that! I have the EXACT same hat that I found in an antique store, but mine came with a little anchor pin on the front. i also got it for $12 haha. but all of the detailing is replica! small world, eh? :)
