Simplicity 4700


This is my first post at Sew Retro!
I’ve been sewing for years, but, am returning after a fairly long break. I am really enjoying checking out what everyone else is working on!

I made up this version of Simplicity 4700, a 1940s pattern for a couple of hats and gloves.  This is view A. I no longer had the instructions for this pattern but got them through Wearing History, where there is a version of this design for sale. I have to wear hats at work ( I am an instrument tech. at a hospital), but, am pretty bored with the bouffants and don’t like the glare from the lights. So, I think this hat is perfect for me. If you would like to see more photos or read about what I did to the pattern, I discuss it in a bit more detail on my blog.
