Executive Decision / Hat of the Day Sketch – Behida Dolić felt cloche

May 19, 2010

After pondering the difficulty I have consistently publishing my Hat of the Day Sketches, I have decided to change it to the Hat of the Week Sketch (HOTW).  I love doing the drawings but in order to do them properly and to my satisfaction (as my art degree nags me), it takes me roughly one hour each day for the process, including selecting the hat I want to draw; drawing it in black and white (takes even longer in color); uploading it; and writing something interesting about it.  An hour a week is much more manageable than an hour a day in this venture!  I do hope you understand.

However, hopefully doing it once a week will afford me a little more time to make each drawing extra special.  I may also throw out the occasional 10H10M (10 Hats in 10 Minutes) sketch at random just because I think they’re fun!


Hat of the Day Sketch

Today’s HOTD is a wonderful hand-draped green felt cloche by modern milliner Behida Dolić.  I read about her in the latest issue of the online hat magazine  Originally from Bosnia, Behida moved to San Francisco where she apprenticed to DeAnna Gibbons before starting her own millinery business.  She creates vintage-inspired hats with modern simplicity and classic style.

      I’m so glad you like the drawing! Your hats are gorgeous and I’m sure I’ll be drawing more of them in the future. If you ever plan to come to Dallas to teach a workshop, let me know. I’m sure members of the Dallas Millinery Society would love to study with you!
