It's Vogue 8440 and I made it with leftover spring tweed ... because I could. I've never made a hat before. I bought this pattern last year for the June Capsule Contest and never used it. It keeps resurfacing as I shuffle things around my sewing room and Saturday evening I was staring at the pile of leftover fabric and decided it would be a good thing to add to my SWAP.
In the interest of not wasting anything, I lined it with leftover pink fabric from my McCalls top. It's also the first time I've used a self covered button. I'd bought a pack years ago and never used it, so I gave it a whirl and I quite like the results. I'll definitely use them again.
Because I couldn't get a decent shot of the hat on my head, here it is on Molly.
