I wanted to go out of my comfort zone and try my hand at making the Gatsby Flat Cap.
If you've never sewn anything like this before this is a fantastic pattern to start off with. The instuctions are clear and easy to follow with step-by-step photos. I wouln't say its a beginner project because there is a lot of curves and seams in hard to reach places, but an advanced beginner on the way to intermediante status would have fun sewing up this pattern.
I would have usually avoided any toys during a mini shoot but I just couldn't help it. The style of this hat is screaming "hey, have fun with me" so I listened and got out the dog guitar.
Sizes on this PDF pattern rage from XXS (6-12 months) to XXXL (adult) or head circumfrence 19 inches to 24.25 inches.
I used a poly blend suiting but I bet a wool blend would look great, a tweed or even a bottom weight or denim would work.
