In case you hadn’t heard, we’ve been busy making outfits for the Royal Wedding Sew-Along. The big day—May 19th—is almost here! It’s not too late to consider adding the perfect accessory for your ensemble. The fascinator is more prevalent in the UK than it is here in the States (we only tend to see women wearing them to things like the Kentucky Derby), but we’d get behind a movement to start wearing them again. They’re cute and perky, right?!
Fortunately, you don’t need to spend a lot of money on your first fascinator. Just make it yourself! Here are four examples of easy fascinators that can be made with a little sewing or a little gluing.
This Pillbox Fascinator above was made using Yaya Han’s fascinator pattern for McCall’s. M7643 features five designs; we made View D with a contrast veil and chain detail on the front.
This Flower Fascinator is so simple to make—no special bow-tying skills required. Click here for complete how-tos.
This Ribbon Infinity Fascinator comes together really quickly. Perfect for beginners! Click here for instructions.
This Sparkle Fascinator calls for pretty ribbon and no more than beginner-level skills. Find the directions here.
