I’m going to apologize in advance if I made a mistake on this post, because it is my first and not quite sure what are the particulars.
A hat made from the instructions of original Sara hat, though with a change of material into corduroy leftover clothe and linen.
Actually this is my first more complicated sewing project of a head wear and since I really don’t have a machine yet, I use hand sewing methods instead.
I’m not so sure of the quality, and I made mistakes here and there that I just made some design adjustment so it won’t be that obvious to the eye. Which it kind of made the style a little different and on my own. Like I made of mistake of closing the band before sewing it on the edges, so I just cover it up with what looks like pants belt holders and adjust the visor, so it will not look obvious.
For design aesthetics and purpose, I adding eyelets so I can add chains if I want to change the style a bit to match outfits.
I’m not really that good with sizing up patterns yet, so though the Sara hat has a pdf of of the main body of the hat, I research and get the body with accurate sizing from other free projects on the net.
I’m sorry if I can’t identify any techniques I use into words, because I just know them by look; but not in name.
Corduroy is kind of hard to work in the curves of the stitches since it already has embossed lines to work with.
Linen is much easier to work with, with stitches that can be straighten easily through curves.
