Hat patterns from the 80’s-90’s are available if you are looking. I love looking. Antique shops, eBay, rummage sales, and estate sales hold many temptations. Have you checked etsy? The Sally Victor one is $35. Hard to believe it was never used. Back in it’s day the desire to look fashionable in her styles would have been huge.
Hard to believe it only cost $.65.
The back of the children’s pattern from the top picture give LOTS of information. It seems these hats can be made from most any fabric. Fleece works too, and has that one quality really appreciated-washing it and it comes out the same as before.
Happy 52st day of 2011!
