This pattern has received 5 stars from 3 reviewers - 1) This pattern is very easy although I had a bit of a problem understanding how the pattern piece for A was going to look like the picture on the envelope. Just follow the directions and voila. I made A and C today and they are so adorable. No fitting problems with either. 2) "I made 3 of these hat styles and it could not have been any easier. View B is loose fitting and would need to be shaped at the headband with milliners wire. 3) Schiaparelli Madcap - I did A in a teal faux Persian lamb which is a knock-off of the madcap which was a famous fad of Schiaparelli's. I actually used a little horsehair interfacing for the top point. I have since spotted this pattern in a 1934 magazine where they recommended it for teens and women in their twenties. Most easy to make.

My pattern just arrived this morning, wrapped up in a darling packet. The pattern and its instructions are printed on good-quality paper, the entire packet held inside a plastic envelope. I can't wait to make my hats and will definitely share a picture of the final result. Also, your business cards are darling.

A fun pattern that makes up quickly and takes very little fabric.

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. :)
