Heather Bailey Boho Cloche Hat Pattern
Oh so cute!
This was my second Heather Bailey pattern to try--the elephants were my first. I used quilting cotton for my fabric, 2 coordinating prints. I am not a beginning sewist by any means, but this pattern introduced me to edge-stitching. It made all the difference in the world as to the final finish of the hat. It looks better than any soft hat I've ever seen in a store. The pattern pieces fit together beautifully. The instructions are very clear with good illustrations. The size I made for myself was spot-on. I'll be doing a different flower than the one suggested, but the one in the pattern might be great for something else. My one piece of advise is to take your time and don't skimp on the edge-stitching.
