Schaperelli inspired hat – a preview

December 28, 2012

So this hat pattern was suggested to me when asking for a retro hat that I could sew without buckram or wire involved. I was a little sceptical as to how it made a ‘hat’ so I did a mock up. (I’m making the real thing for a sew along but this is a little preview). I used a scrap of unknown material, might be denim, might be cotton.

The instructions were simple enough. I did add a little to the 10~” hight to give me more to play with…

I realise now its supposed to be shorter to make a base. Which you then add things to and trim. I’ll probably make the real one in felt or a silk with a lining.

Looks like little cat ears from the front. lol!

I added a ‘bow’ pin. In real life I’d probably pin with a decorative hat pin or a broach.

What do you think?

  1. I’m glad to see your photos, I have been looking to make a hat for a while – and might try this pattern too.

    I like it, it does seem kind of floppy, but as you say the fabric and extra you added may make it more so. I love the bow and pin.

    Great first go at this pattern!
