This is a digital sewing pattern for a lovely cloche hat, clutch bag and scarf set from 1932. The pattern was originally published for the newspaper column of a "Fashion Expert". I have digitally enhanced the images but the instructions are the exact wordings used by the original designer. The grammar and writing style tells me that the "Fashion Expert" was most likely a French woman writing in English.
It is not necessary to print this pattern. The "Pattern" given is a very easy to follow set of instructions for cutting and draping a certain measurement of fabric with several drawings and diagrams.
Please Note: The hat pictured has a pleated brim. The instructions include a plain brim for the pattern, and while instructions are given for a pleated brim, they are somewhat vague and will require a bit of hand-pleating to get the desired effect.
Please note: This pattern is based off of a real 1920's pattern that is in the public domain. However, the pattern and its instructions have been adapted and translated for the 21st century seamstress creating a new and original work.

I grew up in an antique shop surrounded by lovely vintage clothing and I guess vintage just stuck. Recently I took my passion for sewing and vintage lingerie and combined them into a vintage inspired pattern line offering hard to find pattern styles in digital form.
Please Note: There are no returns on digital patterns so please read the item description carefully before purchase.
