One day (a couple of years back, mind you) I realised that my Oma never wore a hat. She said it was because her head was too big for most hats. At the time I was studying millinery and promised to make her a hat. A couple of years down the track, using a commercial pattern, she finally got her hat. I was pretty happy with the construction and the pattern is 'almost' lined up. Oh well, will try again for the next hat.
I must say, she was very happy to finally have the hat, and apparently showed it off to all her friends, haha.
