This fetching cocktail hat is now an exciting sewing project. I designed this hat in the style of the 1940’s as a modified pillbox hat with a teardrop top and a slight peak at the front and at the back. The hat can be worn with the front or back peak facing forward, above the eyebrow. The pattern includes three trim options compatible with the 1940’s or today.
