Learn how to make your own “Wings”, inspired by Hulu’s adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s “The Handmaid’s Tale”. This bonnet is relatively quick and easy to make, and works well for all your Handmaid’s Tale costuming needs - whether cosplay or protest in nature.
I developed this pattern and designed the techniques used to create a bonnet VERY similar to the show, while still being accessible for the everyday hobbyist seamstress.
SEWING EXPERIENCE: Intermediate, but ambitious beginners could also make this. (Watch the video first!) . As with my line of 6 sewing manuals, I take pride in developing patterns and constructing tutorials that anyone can follow. You don't need to have millinery experience - or even all THAT much sewing experience! - to use my pattern, just a little patience!
SIZE: This pattern is considered one-size-fits all, adult.
PATTERN DETAILS: 10 pages of tutorial, 4 pages of pattern comes as single digital PDF to print at home. Pattern prints onto multiple sheets of paper, to be taped together. Pattern/ tutorial is available for download immediately upon purchase.
IMPORTANT: Be sure that your print settings are set to "Print actual size", or else the pattern will print smaller than it should.
Instructions are for either a standard sewing machine (straight stitch and zig zag), or sewing machine and serger. There is no hand sewing involved with the wings. Instructions include colour photos and easy to follow tutorial.
