I’ve been thinking about mini-millinery millinery heads and hat/bonnet stands the last few days. Here is the first head with a learning curve.
I used a scrap of linen, the same linen from my skirt supports. This is the same weight I use for my full size heads. I basically so-called down and simplified the full size version.
This head stands 2.25″ tall. Close to Milli’s size. It likes to wabble. It also has a twist.
- Need to go smaller, about half this size for the shop.
- Use lighter weight, less bulky fabric.
- These need bases with weight. (Hardware store washers)
- This did not stuff as firmly as the human size.
A bit about scale:
Milli is 10″ tall. Compared to me at 5’4″, that makes her 1:7 scale, not a common scale. 1:6 is the closest popular scale. Not that I will be buying her much or anything. The numbers liking side of me just needs to know that. The mini-millinery has an 11″ ceiling. Our ceiling is close to 10′. That means the person inside would be between 5″ and 6″ tall, close to half Milli’s scale. So, I guess the standard 1:12 scale is pretty close.
