My first attempt at the Gatsby cap. It’s not for myself, as you can see it’s a bit big for my head!
I found the instructions a bit tricky to follow, especially what to do with the band piece, but I eventually worked it out based on the head circumference if was making it for. The instructions made no mention about stiffening the fabric or even what to use to stiffen the visor. So what I ended up doing was to line all the main pieces with Pellon/fusible fleece and used both Pellon and buckram for the visor.
Main: Black and White houndstooth wool blend.
Lining: Black pure linen.
Buckram for the visor.
Sweet dresses, an outfit for a doll, and cute embellishments are fun for the holidays!
