This is a digital, print-at-home version of a lovely hat pattern referred to as the
"Smart Spring Hat" in 1928. The pattern
comes with explanations for two different versions. The pattern also
includes a full sized embroidery motif floral pattern shown on the
illustrated hat) that can be transferred to your fabric.
The instructions are detailed and give photos and explanations of the process. 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. The instructions given assume that the user has some experience making hats already, so I would recommend this pattern for an intermediate seamstress.
Contrasting fabrics may be used for unique detail. Taffeta fabric and tartalan (muslin or cheesecloth).
Formatted for both U.S. Letter and A4 paper sizes.
