Chapelier

I haven't posted for about a week as I didn't think I had enough progress to post here. And I was really tired, I don't know why, but just was tired very much. Maybe I have a cold, I have running nose now, but at the same time, it may be a pollen allergy...

By the way, "CHAPELIER" in French it's a person who make and sale hats and it's only male, I heard from my French friend Domy, it's called "Modiste" if a person is female!


We call "Boshi-ya", but there are only few order made shops in Japan!
I didn't know what the CHAPELIER is, and I was thinking that this is a wig-shop, lol.
But when I deeply thought, it shouldn't be a wig-shop on the book from Perrette Samouiloff, lol !
From yesterday, I have just started to stitch for my friend's wedding.
My friend will visit and see this blog, so I can't post any photos of that, but it's beautiful design from "Bleu de Soie".
I should stitch fast then send it to her, because her wedding was yesterday...

A "chapelier" is a person who make and sale hats only for men ! for women is a "modiste". There were a lot of "chapelier" and "modiste" in France during the 19 th century, hats were very popular.
Be happy !
