Free Vintage Cloche Pattern and tutorial

August 3, 2012 by Britex Fabrics 0 comments

This free vintage 1952 cloche pattern and tutorial published by Bramcost Publications is the epitome of urban chic! Although they recommend making it in linen fabric for a springtime feel, we think it would be the perfect transition hat for the beginning of autumn...make it in a lush slate blue worsted wool, sip cider, and watch the leaves change from late summer green to fiery orange! Of course, Britex Fabrics carries all necessary supplies to make this charming hat, including lining, crinoline, millinery wire, and rayon grosgrain ribbon.
