See below for customer comments regarding this pattern:

"When sewing the side crown to the top, I had all this extra fabric on the top. I measured the length of the side crown, within the seam allowances, and it came to 21.75". I measured the circumference of the top at the seam allowance, and got 23". Which surely explained my problem! So I cut a new side crown and brim and added in the extra 1.25". It made sense how the error happened - the edge of the pattern piece measures 22.5", which is what the pattern says the size of the hat is. The seam allowances just weren't taken into account. With the circumference of the top (and the crown, once sewn) being 23" at the seam, that is actually perfect for a head that measures 22.5", with a .5" of fitting ease built in. I really do like the pattern; thank you for providing it"

This pattern was shipped promptly and was attractively packaged but still in an envelope small enough to fit in my little apartment-sized mailbox (saving me a trip to the post office). I made the "black" hat, but out of striped denim, and am quite happy with the results. The instructions may be difficult for an inexperienced sewer though. Quick note about the step that says to "cut away as much of the seam allowance as is possible" (on the brim): Perhaps I misunderstood, or maybe this step is specific to felted hats, about which I know very little, but with a woven or knitted textile, I would not recommend doing this unless you want the seam to fall apart. Instead I notched the seam allowance there (and on all inward-curving seams) as close to the stitching as possible. All in all an excellent purchase!

Just gorgeous! I cut this paper pattern last night and was thrilled with the quality of the paper--not too heavy, not too light (picky detail, I know, but I like good paper for patterns). It is clear and easy-to-read. Also, the seller could not be sweeter!! This is my new favorite pattern source. :)

This has to be the best cloche pattern I've used! I stitched and turned the brim instead of binding it - mainly because I simply wasn't paying attention to the instructions! - and it came out just fine. It goes together like a dream, and the sizes are generous - the largest is easily big enough to wear over both my huge head and my fingerwave wig when needed, and the medium is a very comfortable fit for everyday wear (the pic is of the medium size)

Well I am VERY happy with how this turned out. A really flattering shape and style. I'm a 38" bust, not 36" so had to learn how to enlarge patterns. Easy to follow instructions and great communication with seller. 5* all round!
