I love this style of hat. I have a really small head (I made the smallest size in the pattern), so it's hard to find a hat that suits.
It's also notoriously difficult to photograph a hat effectively!
I used a really thin wool suiting fabric - it's actually the exact same fabric that I used for my beret.
I wanted to have a bit of fun on the interior (business on the outside / party on the inside), so I lined it with my Clark Loves Edna fabric
I'm totally in love with it, so now I'm going to make some for the nephews.
If you like a bit of instant gratification sewing, then this Flat Cap pattern is available for instant download. Gotta love technology!
