The first sewing project of the year! A pattern-drafting hat-making project for my theatre production wardrobe class. The first fabric is a grey tweed; the second something that I found at the reuse centre about three years ago: I don’t know what kind of fabric it is.
It turned out a little less floppy than I’d thought, the bands a little wide but overall it is possibly the best hat I have.
Definitely the warmest – wonderful tweed and another layer of something that’s just as thick. Pretty content with the hat situation.
Here are some of the results
I will never stop loving the discount wall at fabric land
I was originally planning on evening out the hem but now I think I like the points that the hem comes to. It’s sort of flowery in a way.
This was a burda pattern embellished for the sake of a school assignment.
Unfortunately I was unaware of the petite size chart and cut it out wrong so it is now tiny.
The yoke was cross-stitched, pattern from a book of Celtic cross-stitch patterns. The grid patterns were just machine stitched.
My model was a tired and slightly grumpy older sister (staring into the distance)
