This is a digital version of a lovely hat referred to as the "flexible silk hat” in 1927. Though it looks much like a cloche the hat is a bit more loose fitting and rides lower in the head much like a toque.
The pattern consists of a printable patter diagram and measurements which one uses to drape and sew the hats. The instructions are detailed and give photos and explanations of the instructions. However, this is a vintage pattern using language and millinery terms from the 1920's that may not be 100% familiar to the modern reader.
Contrasting fabrics may be used for unique detail. Ribbon wire is called for as well as "netine" which I believe to be a firm sort of interfacing.
