Metropolitan Hat Pattern
Includes adult sizes Small, Medium and Large
Pattern condition: Uncut, factory folded and complete with instructions
~ Item for sale is a sewing pattern, not a finished hat ~
This hat dates from the early 20th century and represents a transitional period in millinery history -- following the oversize Victorian confections of veiling and stuffed birds, but before the head-hugging cloches of the 1920s.
Fast and easy to sew, it has a casual and slightly slouchy look, with a modest brim and fabric flowers at center front. There are just three pattern pieces: Brim, Band, and Crown. Each piece is cut twice -- out of fabric, or fabric and complementary lining -- for a fully-lined, easy-to-wear chapeau.
The decorative fabric Rosettes can be fashioned out of the hat fabric, contrasting materials such as lace, tulle, or glittering silk, or entirely replaced by a vintage brooch or dramatic button. Diagrams and easy to sew instructions for the rosettes are included.
Suggested Fabrics: Linens, wools, silks, medium-weight cottons, denim, corduroy, fleece. NOTE: For soft, drapey fabrics, lightly interface the Band and Brim to maintain the proper silhouette.
