A Chic French Pattern for a Cocktail Hat from 1954. There are
instructions but not many. If you are looking for a step by step
guide then these patterns are not for you. They assumed you
sewed back then and knew what you were doing.
Recommended fabrics were satin, taffeta etc and the hat body
was something called Sparterie which translates to wicker work,
so I would think sinamay or buckram would work just as well.
You’ll also need beads, sequins or maybe diamante to decorate.
Easy to make with instructions in French.
The pattern comes as one easy to download and print PDF
When printing the pattern from the PDF, you must choose
actual size. Otherwise your pattern will come out the wrong size.
It is set up to print for both US letter and A4.
