|Pattern Description: |
Four lined hats, each offered in XSmall, Small, Medium and Large. Hat A has contrast lining. Hat D has contrast band and bow.
XS to L I did large, pattern C
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
yes I think so. It comes very low down on the face, which in fairness to vogue, it does also on their photos, I just hadnt thought about seeing from under it. Adding the rigiline to the rim has probably altered the overall look a little
Were the instructions easy to follow?
yes they were, I bought heavy sew-in interlining. On the pattern sleeve it didnt state which interlining to buy. It turned out to be a bit limp with my fabric choices.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the shape of the head pieces and the fact all the options look quite different from each other, dependant on fabric and brim choice.
"soft grey" cotton linen (dress, jacket weight) and a charcoal cotton lining, both recycled from old garments.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I used a woven ribbon instead of the band pattern piece as described so that I could make it reversible. I also found the hat a bit deep on me and the brim was flopping making it difficult to see through, I may alter that next time. So I slotted some rigilene into the brim edging to make it firm and hold it more upright. I didnt make the ties.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
yes its a nice style. Id like to make a winter version and also one from waterproof material
a real useful pattern for all seasons depending on fabric choice. To read and see more visit
