Recently I was lucky enough to add a really great World War II era flight cap sewing pattern to my collection. I had so much fun sewing it up for myself. I think I’ll be making it again soon in a mini fascinator size!

I didn’t have any ‘olive drab’ colored fabric in my stash so I went instead with a thick, black cotton and a yard of vintage gray double-fold bias tape.

The hat was a breeze. It came together perfectly within an hour, and had really great finishing instructions for the seams.

Happy Sewing!
