Description

Recently I was lucky enough to add a really great World War II era flight cap sewing pattern to my collection. I had so much fun sewing it up for myself that I decided to turn it into a PDF and offer it in my etsy shop.

The hat was a breeze. It came together perfectly within an hour, and had really great finishing instructions for the seams.

You can read more about this, and my other sewing projects on my blog A Few Threads Loose:

This product is for sale

Material Notes

I didn’t have any ‘olive drab’ colored fabric in my stash so I went instead with a thick, black cotton and a yard of vintage gray double-fold bias tape.

    Love it! I went to your etsy shop and it’s sold out. Any chance you’ll upload it again?

      Hi, I just uploaded it again. If you see it sold again, I usually re-list them within a couple of hours.
      Cheers!
