Thanks everyone for your suggestions!

i really love the first hat!!
did you use the pattern exactly or did you have to adjust it?
i always have problems with hats, they are always too big!!

I used the pattern exactly, but it wouldn't be too hard to adjust.  The pattern is made for a head er..circumference of 22.5 inches.  So you could easily just add to take away from the pattern to fit.  I would just say, however much you need to take off, divide that measurement by two and subtract that from one of the pattern pieces since you'll be cutting out two.  I hope that makes sense.

Those look adorable, I do think a smallish brim on the second would be cute...kinda vintage newsboy!  If you added a cute vintage broach, flower, etc. it would keep it feminine.  Just a thought. Cheesy  Great job!  Grin

Love that first hat. It makes me think of something that Twiggy would have worn - very 60's. Cool

I loved that first hat so much- I downloaded the pattern and made my own! I always feel like I have a huge head, so I added an extra panel and of course now it is too big (hence no action shot)- I'm going to trek to the $ store this afternoon and get some blk elastic, put a strip in the back so it will fit.

Anyway- thanks for posting. I never would have known I could make a hat otherwise.



The front. I did change it up a litle bit from the pattern.



side view. I used some vintage buttons I had lying around.


Thanks for looking.

Looks great!  I love all the decorative stitching.  Next time if you're looking to make it bigger, it'd probably just be easier to add a little width to the existing panels instead of adding another one.  Although, elastic should fix your problem too.  Thanks for posting yours.  I like seeing what other people have done with the same pattern!
