I have been looking everywhere for vintage dress patterns, so I happened to go to Sense and Sensibility Patterns' website. Whilst browsing through the 40s and 50s categories, I saw the pattern for the Pearl Harbor Pillbox Hat. I of course fell in love with it immediately. I mean, a vintage hat that you can crochet? What could be better? I got the pattern and went to making it. It comes together surprisingly fast. Since I didn't have any wool yarn (imagine it - no wool yarn. simply horrifying!), I just grabbed some Red Heart worsted in brown, and started crocheting. Since it isn't wool, it isn't so "relaxed" as the one in the picture, but I actually like it this way.
I sewed up a lil' bow out of my dress fabric to dress it up. It is just pinned on so I can switch it out with other outfits.
Long story short; I love my new hat. I can't wait to make one in every color!
Currently working on:
hemming my green plaid circle skirt
planning a regency gown (I have exactly 25 days to have it d-o-n-e)
