DULUTH, Minn. – Emily Moe watches episodes of “Downton Abbey” twice: first for the storyline, then to pay closer attention to the PBS period drama’s fashions – specifically the hats.
A maroon cloche worn by the character Lady Mary at the train station in Season 2 stands as one of her favorite hats to appear on screen. Moe is using it as inspiration for her own homemade version.
“I’ve pretty much always been obsessed with hats,” Moe said.
Moe has been honing her hat-making craft for the past decade and selling her pieces online on Etsy and at regional fairs. Her hats were part of the costumes for the College of St. Scholastica’s production of “Iph” and will be featured in an upcoming production of “Side Show.” Moe also teaches classes in hat-making for DIYers.
