Somebody said that my recently made coat looked like a flapper coat, so that reminded me of a hat pattern- Vogue 8844 that I bought specifically for View B, which looked like a flapper hat to me. I had some leftover fabric from my last two projects- the black camelhair and mocha melton, so I decided to do a colorblock version.

An interesting story about the bow. I had some beautiful wool pants in winter white. For some reason, I thought that they were washable wool. They weren't. They shrunk about 8 inches in length, but left the fabric nice and soft. I knew someday I would have an application for a piece of white wool, and this was the day!
I think that it is important to get a good measurement of your head before you begin to get a good fit. Whenever I've tried on hats in stores, they are usually too small, so I was guessing I would need a Large, but measured at a Medium. The size that matched my head measurement fit me perfectly.
