To complete the 1920s-project, at last a few words about my hat. According to the season, I was in need of a light summer hat for my dress. I did not want to use felt and I did not want to wear a straw hat. In my mind I had a typical 1920s cloche. Browsing the www, I soon found the Cloche Hat Tutorial from mymagicmom. Although it is not an original 1920s-pattern, this was exactly what I have been looking for. A great basis für my cloche! And you have just to print out the pattern and start sewing. Okay - I first had to adjust the pattern on my measurements (it´s a pattern for a childs hat).
I used a cotton-linen-fabric and - because I did not want the seams to be seen through the white fabric - lined the top with a white batiste. The upper and the lower part of the brim, however, were both made of fabric.
Okay, oben am Hut passen die Schnitteile nicht millimetergenau aufeinander. Aber wer sieht schon so genau hin?
Okay, I have to confess, that the pieces at the upper hat do not fit exactly. But who cares....?
Bei der Deko probierte ich zunächst ein wenig herum und entscheid mich dann dafür, kein Hutband zu benutzen. Den vorderen Teil des Hutes schlug ich nach oben um und mein Schleifchen befestigte ich direkt am Hut. Für mich sah es so genau richtig aus.
After trying out a little bit I decided not to use a ribbon, but fold back the front brim and to sew the loops directly to the hat. In my opinion, that was the way, how the hat looked right.
