269 Metropolitan Hat

Folkwear

This hat dates from the early 20th century and represents a transitional period in millinery history — following the oversize Victorian confections of veiling and stuffed birds, but before the head-hugging cloches of the 1920s. Fast and easy to sew, it has a casual and slightly slouchy look, with a modest brim and fabric flowers at center front. There are just three pattern pieces: Brim, Band, and Crown. Each piece is cut twice — out of fabric, or fabric and complementary lining — for a fully-lined, easy-to-wear chapeau. The decorative fabric Rosettes can be fashioned out of the hat fabric, contrasting materials such as lace, tulle, or glittering silk, or entirely replaced by a vintage brooch or dramatic button.

Suggested Fabrics: Linens, wools, silks, medium-weight cottons, denim, corduroy, fleece. NOTE: For soft, drapey fabrics, lightly interface the Band and Brim to maintain the proper silhouette.
