Dido's Turban

As featured on BBC4’s A Stitch in Time, Dido Belle’s “faux” turban was created using a straw hat base, and then with silk fabric draped and positioned to mimic that in the portrait. Any structural or anchoring stitches were then hidden with beads.

     - The rest of the ensemble was constructed by Ninya Mikhaila & Harriet Waterhouse.
