DIY Silk Flowers For My 1920s Cloche Hat

I made more 100% silk flowers! 😀 They’re a decoration for my 1920s sheer summer cloche hat.

My inspiration was this pretty 1920s sheer cloche with a flowering branch.

I used my hand-painted and starched silk fabric and sheer viscose fabric and cut out flowers with four petals in pink and white. For the pink flowers I used silk fabric and for the white ones viscose fabric. Each flower is made with two layers.

Then I attached them to a piece of wire and covered the wire with green cotton thread. The thread is just wrapped around the wire and not glued – I don’t like to use store-bought glue.

I also stitched some petals and leaves to a piece of starched viscose fabric. Because it’s starched, the edges don’t fray. Then I’ve stitched the wire to the back of the flower corsage.
