Sewing Pattern Sun Hat PDF


Over the Top sun hat PDF pattern by Dory Smith Graham of worthygoods. A digital pattern that you can buy, download and print out instantly. No waiting!

Shy? No. But if you are, it's the perfect cover.

Wear this completely reversible hat poolside, to the beach, in the garden or out-and-about antiquing. Forget about sunscreen getting in your eyes, you won't need it above your neck. Shape-able brim stretches a full 21 inches across from shoulder to shoulder. A glamorous hat that can handle a punchy design. My advice? Sew it, fold it, pack it and take it where the sun shines.When selecting fabrics for the hat itself, a few considerations: 

Quilting-weight cottons are perfect. One bold side and another complimentary small print will give it versatility. Find one fabric that you just adore, then find a companion. Consider organics, clean, unused (new) vintage cotton, as well as upcycling something (a sheet or curtain, maybe?) with a great design.

Care: You got it dirty in the garden? No trouble. Spot clean with a bit of detergent and a damp cloth. Shape to dry.
