See below for a review of this pattern:
"Great pattern, VPLL does a beautiful repro. Unlike so many 30's patterns, this goes together simply and logically with good instructions. I top-stitched the seams and used my wing needle for some hem-stitching around the edge of the brim. It worked really well and hem-stitching is a 30's embellishment. The crown by itself rather resembles a bathing cap. I thought I should take in the seam to make it fit my head. Next time I'll play with the seam after I put on the brim, I think I made the crown a little too shallow. The initial sewing went together in an evening. The lining and the ribbon stay need to be slip-stitched in by hand, which I find pleasant. I recommend trimming the seams very well before attaching the lining. When I make this again, I will make the brim slightly wider and probably use several layers of crinoline or some buckram. I want a "hatty" hat. This one is fine for a little cotton hat but a little slouchy, it's a great base from which to start and an easy first hat project."

Perfect nice hat pattern. The instructions and illustrations are better than most of this time period.

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)
