This hat is easy and gorgeous once done. I did make it in the purple colors as shown for my daughter's Rebecca. I didn't sew appliques or bling on the hat as we thought that isn't historically accurate. I did make the purple wool roses to put on the brim and those turned out beautifully. I would suggest making the lining of the cloche hat alittle bit bigger, as mine was just abit to small. But overall, it was fast to sew up, we will make a few more in other colors. Perfect hat for Rebecca.
My experience with this patter was very good. I enjoyed working with patter, it was very easy. I was also very pleased that the hat fit the dolls head. It was a serious challenge to try the beautiful beadwork demonstrated on the pattern cover, however, the result was lovely. I would recommend this pattern for anyone interested in making hats. The possibilities are endless.
