This fetching cloche hat is now an exciting sewing project. I designed this cloche wit a little bit of the 1920's in mind. The brim folds into a pleat, forming a whimsical, feminine 'S' line to frame the face. It makes a lovely hat for little girls and adult women alike and provides full coverage for the hair line and a little shade for the face.

Intermediate - You must be familiar with your sewing machine and properties of different fabrics.
20"-25" measuring around the head above the ear (child to adult)
FABRIC AND NOTIONS:
• ½ yard of hat fabric
• ¼ yard of lining fabric
• Matching thread (hat and trim color)
• Iron-on adhesive or fusible interfacing (optional)
• ¼ yard of plain cotton fabric (optional)
• Desired trim elements
• Sewing machine needle for thick fabrics (denim needle)
The key to this hat is finding the right thickness and rigidity so that you achieve a perfectly sleek ‘S’ curve on the brim pleat without it being too floppy or folding into a zigzag. I recommend a fabric of medium-heavy thickness like faux suede which is also rigid and non-stretch. However, even if you are using a fabric of medium thickness (corduroy, velvet, etc), thin fabric (linen, microsuede, etc) or fabric with stretch, you can thicken and/or stabilize it using the interfacing techniques described in this pattern. Patterns or stripes on the fabric may detract from the accent pleat, so choose a fabric that isn’t too busy. For the hat lining, fabrics like taffeta lining or pre-washed cotton are best.
