This is a print at home reproduction of the most lovely and rare French hat pattern I have ever found. The pattern is for four delightful hats from the 1950's. (See second image).
Model A - Beret - Very quick and requires little tissue, the beret has in addition, the advantage of being very practical. Preferably choose a sensible fabric (taffeta or woolens) otherwise, before cutting, it will be necessary to interface with a muslin to support the bottom and sides.
Model B – A lovely young and stylish statement. Choose a soft fabric (silk or light wool).
Model C - Model very becoming performed in soft fabric (jersey or angora for winter, chiffon and silk for the summer.) The scarf can be tied behind with loose panels.
Model D - Small cloche easy to wear; a sports hat in wool or dressed up in velvet, satin, taffeta, and especially if it is decorated with a veil.
Size 22 1/2" or 56 cm with instructions for resizing. I have translated the instructions into English; a copy of the French instructions is also included.
Formatted for both U.S. Letter and A4 paper sizes. You might also be interested in "Individuality in Millinery" a 1920's millenery sewing manual with patterns and how-to's:
Printing a PDF is easy. Just open, hit print, and make sure that your printer scale is set to 100% (this should be the default setting in most cases).
