Metropolitan Hat by Folkwear Patterns

(Code: FWP269)
doneIn Stock

This hat dates from the early 20th century and represents a transitional period in millinery history -- following the oversize Victorian confections of veiling and stuffed birds but before the head-hugging cloches of the 1920s.

Fast and easy to sew it has a casual and slightly slouchy look with a modest brim and fabric flowers at center front. There are just three pattern pieces: Brim Band and Crown. Each piece is cut twice -- out of fabric or fabric and complementary lining -- for a fully-lined easy-to-wear chapeau. The decorative fabric Rosettes can be fashioned out of the hat fabric contrasting materials such as lace tulle or glittering silk or entirely replaced by a vintage brooch or dramatic button.

Suggested Fabrics: Linens, wools, silks, medium-weight cottons, denim, corduroy, fleece. NOTE: For soft drapey fabrics lightly interface the Band and Brim to maintain the proper silhouette.
