Party hat

Added Aug 3, 2011

Chicago, Illinoi...






I made this hat for my almost SIL’s tea party/bridal shower. I had a gingham remnant in my stash — not much fabric — and I intended to use it as the muslin for the pattern. It’s made from Wearing History 3012, a 1930s hat pattern. The pattern does sew up a bit small for my slightly oversized melon (and I have very thick hair, which complicates anything intended for my head).

But I loved my gingham hack job, so I decided I’d wear it instead of making another (better-fitting) version. I had to pin it in the back, but I got complimented by strangers and I absolutely loved wearing.
