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.
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.
I added a ‘bow’ pin. In real life I’d probably pin with a decorative hat pin or a broach.
What do you think?
