Lead Weights for All Your Sewing Needs! / Hat of the Day Sketch – William Chambers, 2009-2010 collection

April 22, 2010

I have to share this little snippet of history with you.  I was digging through my grandma’s sewing chair tonight and found this:

lead weights - front

lead weights - back

I don’t know about you, but I’m glad someone realized that wearing lead weights anywhere near your body probably isn’t a good idea.  I had to laugh out loud when I found it, though.  It’s amazing to see how our perceptions of everyday things change over time.


Hat of the Day Sketch

Today’s HOTD is a sleek leopard print velour fedora (or trilby for those outside of America) by William Chambers Millinery’s Autumn/Winter 2009-2010 collection.  This gorgeous gal is trimmed with chocolate brown petersham ribbon (millinery grosgrain) and red spiky feathers on a pad connecting at the hat band.  It’s such a timeless look and could be dressed up or down.  I think I feel some drool on my chin….
