This is a PDF sewing pattern for the 1920/30s-inspired Kettlebaston Cloche hat, featuring an integrated band, pieced crown and tab/button trim.

This cute little hat has a neat brim reminiscent of the flattering shapes of the late 20s and early 30s cloches. It is equally suitable for 21st century attire made in tweed, moleskin or corduroy for autumn and winter wear, or in lighter weight linen fabrics for perfect vintage-inspired springtime wear.

This PDF has 15 pages—11 pages including the cover, general, cutting out and step-by-step instructions, and 4 pattern sheets with the templates, which you must print and cut out. All of the templates are actual size. As many of the templates are too big to fit on one sheet, you must cut out and tape these templates together where shown. Instructions for this are clear. Three different sizes – small (21½”), medium (22½) and large (23½”) – are included in the pattern. This pattern is not suitable for beginners.

Materials needed:

½ yard (50cm) of 54” (140cm) wide, or 2/3yard of 44” (112cm) wide, exterior fabric for the outside of the hat
2/3 yard (60cm) of 36” (92cm) wide fusible interfacing (in a firm weight) to stiffen the exterior fabric
¼ yard (25cm) of 36” (92cm) wide lining fabric to line the hat
Approx. 1 yard (39cm) of 1” (25mm) width grosgrain ribbon for interior band
1 button approx. 1¼” (35mm) diameter to trim side tab

You will also need:
Sticky tape (to join pattern templates)
Sewing machine
Fabric marker pen, pencil or chalk
Thread to match fabric
