Construction of the coat was discussed in the 1/13/14 post Wide Bands of Fur on a Winter Coat. Below is a photo of the coat.

|Grosgrain band covers raw seam allowance edges|
|I used the Top from View L and the Crown from View E|
|Two pattern pieces: so simple to cut from fashion fabric and lining|
|The Crown was reshaped to curve around the head|
I know many sewers have taken professional millinery classes so they can construct ornate hats. My passion is garment sewing and while I would enjoy having fine millinery skills, I do not want to divert much time away from garment sewing. Simple hats are a quick project for sewers of all levels. This hat could easily be embellished with a feather or jeweled pin.
