Item details




This romantic cloche hat is now an exciting sewing project. I designed this cloche in the style of the 1920's. The brim gathers into 2 pleats on one side and can be flipped up or down on the other. It makes a lovely hat for little girls and adult women alike.

This PDF file is instantly downloadable and can be printed on 8.5"x11" letter sized paper or A4 paper. It contains detailed illustrations of each step of the project. The pattern is complete with sewing tips, notions required, fabric recommendations, size measurement instructions, sewing terminology and coupons for your next Elsewhen purchase. The sewing and millinery techniques in this pattern will be useful for future sewing projects and your overall understanding of hat construction.

Intermediate - You must be familiar with your sewing machine and properties of different fabrics.

19"-25" measuring around the head above the ear (child to adult)

• ½ yard of hat fabric
• Matching thread (hat and trim color)
• ¼ yard of lining fabric
• 2 covered buttons (desired size)
• Iron-on adhesive or fusible interfacing (optional)
• Sewing machine needle for thick fabrics (denim needle)

I recommend a fabric of light to medium thickness like corduroy, canvas, light upholstery fabric or velvet. Thicker fabrics that are stiff or bulky will not produce a very cleanly waved pleat. If you are using a thin fabric like linen or fabric with stretch, you can thicken or stabilize it by fusing it to interfacing or to cotton with iron-on adhesive. Patterns or stripes on the fabric may detract from the accent pleat area, so choose a fabric that isn’t too busy. For the hat lining, fabrics like taffeta, satin, or pre-washed cotton are best.

When you buy more than one pattern at a time, enter "2PATTERNS" for two patterns or "3PATTERNS" for three patterns, to receive $3 off your second and third pattern. If you buy patterns one at a time receive the same discount on additional patterns using the coupons printed in your pattern.
