Military Garrison Cap or Sidecap

from Steam Ingenious
(9) Name: 'Sewing : Military Garrison Cap or Sidecap
Military Garrison Cap or Sidecap
Military Garrison Cap or Sidecap

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • basic sewing
  • sewing curved seams
  • making bias tape

Pattern Description:

This sewing pattern was created from a vintage US Army garrison cap. Now with this sewing pattern, you can create a military cap in any fabric, with any embellishments. Whatever you can imagine, you can make!

The full-size sewing pattern includes three sizes: Small (18-20" head circumference), Medium (20-22"), and Large (23-24"). The pattern is designed to be printed on any home printer. After purchase, you will receive a link to download the pattern directly. It includes two PDF files: the pattern and details instructions with full-size color photos of each step.

The pattern is appropriate for an intermediate level sewer. It includes a lining as well as the exterior fabric so construction is a little more complicated than some of my other beginner level sewing patterns.

If you have any questions, please contact me. I hope you enjoy this pattern and find making these hats as addictive as I have!
