Christina and I have chosen the Trilby Style hat from the Japanese book for our project.
We think the patterns are "without seam allowances" and are proceeding on that premise. This is great for me, because I cut off seam allowances on most patterns. So with this one all that was needed was to trace, bond tracing to freezer paper and cut. (This gives me a nice thick pattern to chalk trace around on the fabric.) Yay! Pattern is ready.
Next selection of fabric and interfacing. Have laid these out and if still like them by Wed. hope to get started bonding interfacing to fabric.The print will be the "hidden" lining inside the crown. The solid will be the tip and the top brim. The check the crown and the lower brim.
