I jacked my neighbor as she was smugly strutting by wearing MY Coco Chapeau and made her stand still long enough for me to nab a few snaps. Here's the project pics. Enjoy!
Pattern Description: Brimmed Sun Cap
I TOLD you making hats is addictive.
Pattern Sizing: For Fat Heads. Like my neighbor.
Did it look like the cap you tore apart to make a new cap once you were done sewing with it? Yes!
Did you make up the sewing instructions as you went along? Yes!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? It was small. As in small pattern pieces. And I re-used the existing brim from the original cap.
Fabric Used: Scraps of Bark Cloth from a jacket I found in the back of my Mom's closet. (I think I may have made it for her about 20 years ago based on the size of the shoulders pads. No wonder she never wore it. Cool fabric though.) Here's a link for those of you who didn't see the first hat I made from this fabric. One jacket = two hats. Told you those shoulders were big.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I ix-nayed the floral embroidery trim on the original cap. And the tourist attraction embroidery on the brim as well.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I will and I do! Everybody needs a sun cap, especially if you run about town like a mad badger in your convertible roadster. What? You don't have a convertible? Well, either go GET YOURSELF ONE RIGHT NOW or just make this hat and people will think you do. Which is sorta nearly as good.
Conclusion: I think this cap came out pretty cute. Apparently, so did my fat headed neighbor who put it on and exclaimed "Oh My Gosh, it fits!" then walked out the door with it on her head. WHY do I let That Woman in my house? I never learn.
