Ring in the Vintage New Year (Day 15): Vintage Bowler Hat Pattern
Today concludes our "Ring in the VIntage New Year" pattern giveaway -- but no worries, we have lots more to come! Book giveaways, book sneak peeks, new book announcements and more free vintage pattern giveaways! Now, on to today's pattern ....
Today's vintage pattern is a bowler hat. Clean and crisp in style, with straight forward instructions for making. There are only 3 pieces to this pattern; however, two of the pieces were too large to print on one page. So Pieces 1A and 1B go together to make one piece and Pieces 2A and 2B go together to make one piece.
I recommend printing the pattern pieces and tracing them on tissue. The pattern pieces provided are in PDF format and actual size. Note that the "on fold" edge must be placed directly on the fold of fabric and the fold must not be cut. The arrow indicates lengthwise grain of fabric.
For more vintage millinery techniques and patterns, please click on the book covers above. Also watch in the next coming months for more books containing hat patterns from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s!
PDF pattern pieces are directly below with materials and instructions following. Please feel free to email us or post your finished photos -- and remember to Ring in the New Year by resolving to "add a little vintage to your day!"
