Last minute request from my sister. My daughter is modelling it so it may look a little more Holly Hobby on her than Offred



In an effort to be true to the pattern used for the TV show I've pleated the back, not really visible on my small girl but trust me, you can see it when a grown up wears it.


The brim is attached with vecro so it can be removed revealing the inner cap with that little folded corner detail.


I made a tidier version of this brim tutorial:

And a combo of this cap tutorial:

and this one:

Very well done!  Is this for a Halloween costume, or for a protest?

Knowing my sister the answer is yes to both. She had a big party at the community artist space she lives at last night where she wore her costume, hopefully she'll send me photos of it all together. After this, I wouldn't be surprised if she wore it again for the purposes of rabble rousing. Our hippie mama took us to all the demos and marches growing up, it's in our blood Wink.

Thanks Smiley. The more I look at it, the more I actually want to make a Holly Hobby costume Cheesy.
