>Sporty Toppers, a 1930s Hat Pattern

>I’m pleased to announce the newest pattern, a reproduction of a hat pattern that is suitable for looks for 1936-1938, though it would be equally fun when made to mix and match with modern looks.  This hat pattern is absolutely adorable and so much fun to sew.  I had a lot of fun making up the samples and keep dreaming all the outfits I can make with matching hats!  For my samples I used mid heavy weight linens that I had scraps of in my fabric stash, and had a lot of fun playing with matching ribbons.  There are five hats in this pattern.  Two of the hats are really fun and quirky, very appropriate for 1930s collegiate looks- the pointy pixie hat and the strappy cap.  The flat beret style hat and the ladies fedora would be perfect for two piece dresses or suits or tailored dresses.  The wide brim sun hat would look dreamy with cool summer frocks or casual garden dresses, or if made up in colorful printed cottons would be playfully chic with beach pajamas or swimsuits and cover ups.
This pattern is now available on my website.  I hope you enjoy it as  much as I’ve enjoyed sharing it!

    >How perfectly gorgeous! Where did you find those star eyelets on the first hat?

  14. >I'm so glad you all like these! Yay!Marloes- I think it depends on which one- the little pointed one was really easy to sew up- the hardest part were the eyelets. The brimmed one was probably the most difficult. Just to be safe I say intermediate, but a beginner with experience might be able to make them up.Noirgirl, I got the eyelets from this etsy seller. She has them in other colors, too!http://www.etsy.com/shop/designsbyjude
