Modern Pattern meets Vintage Fabric


I had the idea for this project a few years ago when I acquired the remnants of wool tweed, c 1950′s, from a vast estate sale haul several years ago. Louise was a keen sewer who was very stylish and a hot tamale (lots of 50′s sheath dresses).

The fabric was washed and prepped and has been sitting ever since.

I love hats. A lot. This is a great basic pattern that easy and looks good as is. But if you google “cloche” like I did for ideas, the inspiration of beautiful hats and embellishments is endless. This pattern makes a great base foundation for wherever your style takes you.
