Cap by urbandon

Check out
for very easy instructions for creating a basic cap. It’s what you do to the basic pattern that will make it yours. In my case doubled the height to give it a floppy effect that can be worn several ways. Also makes great use of leftover fabric.
These are made with wool suiting with satin pin-stripe lining.

      Hahaha! The 3rd pic could be interpreted as a ‘gotta-get-this-photo-done-god-i-love-this-hat-wait-is-there-someone-in-the-house’ face?

    This looks super cool on you! I love the shape. I might make some cap to my husband, he likes to wear something on his head all the time…
