Today’s project is a headdress made with mosaic from the JUBILEE collection. Stained glass-like translucent color tones of this fabric are so pretty. Familiar to this craft & sewing column, Anri has returned with her creation.

We interviewed Anri about her creation:
Kokka Fabric (KF): What did you think of the fabric you used for this project?
Anri: It is a thin #60 lawn fabric that has many beautiful colors! It instantly reminded me of a scarf, and I wanted to create something to wear over your head. Though it is a thin fabric, with slight tension, it is manageable. Even for a project with complicated details, it is an easy to sew fabric.
KF: Can you tell us any special elements or ideas that you incorporated into this creation?
Anri: Rather than folding, a gathering technique is used to determine the width. A natural pleated detail accentuates the top. Its style is not edgy nor cutesy. I tried to make it versatile so that you can wear it every day.
KF: What are some tips for making this headdress?
Anri: The size is free, though you can change it by adjusting the length of the elastic tape for about ±0.5〜1cm.
KF: How should we use this headdress in everyday situations?
Anri: In the photo, loosely braided hair is incorporated into the headdress. You may just tie your hair with it, or you can wear it with your updo. You may casually wear it with your bob or short style hair and transform to a stylish look. A perfect hair accessory for busy housewives in the morning.
KF: Thank you very much, Anri! Here are sewing instructions along with step by step photos from her. Enjoy crafting!
