Pattern Description: This pattern had no description, so I”ll overview. The pattern is for 6 different hat/bonnet styles for little girls from birth to about 2, depending on head measurement. The sizing goes from a 17″ to 20″, and sizes are on the inch in between those measurements.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Written Instructions: The written instructions were very easy to follow; specific, easy to follow along with, and lots of pictures.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like how there are several different styles to chose from within one pattern. I also like that it’s easy to alter.
Fabric Used: I used cotton eyelet that has a decorative trim instead of selvage on one side.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I did not do the applique in the front of the brim, instead I used eyelet and made my fabric fit the piece so I could utilize the border from the eyelet fabric. I made fabric ties instead of using ribbon. And, I added 3 trims to the top of the hat (my favorite part).
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes I would sew it again, and plan to make a different style next.
Conclusion: Good pattern, doesn’t require any crazy amounts of anything (fabric, trim, etc.). Very clear instructions with plenty of pictures. Very cute!
