Snow+an Idea= Aviator Hat

Ever since I watched the Walton's TV series a couple years ago, I have wanted to make one of these aviator hats. Jim-Bob Walton would wear a hat like this as he dreamed about becoming a pilot. So today, while I was stuck in my house due to snow, I made this!

It went from a sketch on a piece of paper, to a paper pattern, to a couple of muslin drafts to cut up, to a finished product all in one day! I am happy with how it turned out, the shape is exactly what I had in mind. I was looking around on the internet for shapes similar to this, but couldn't find any, so it was trial and error for a while here.


  1. AMAZING!! How much?

  2. You should have a picture of you modelling it. I know Jenn has been looking for something like that.
    What is URL?

  3. I'm not good at self photography these days, I'll have to wait till my model gets home. Should I facebook a picture to you or Jenn?
