I've been very inspired by some of the Wa-loli designs in the Gothic Lolita Bibles, and this one came across because I had a lot of leftover Asian printed fabric.
One of the outfits in the book featured a very punk looking girl wearing a tattered kimono >3 I loved the image of that and thought it looked very edgy. That inspired this hat design, where the dragon print on the cotton reminded me of the tattoos that Yakuza members cover their body with >D It was a lot of fun to make.
I actually have the pattern for this hat so you can make a similar one on your own in my first sewing book, Sew Kawaii!
