This pattern has three different projects for you and all designed for everyone to wear. First is the Baker Boy hat, or sometimes called an Eight Panelled Hat or News Boy Hat. This timeless classic can be made for all weathers from lovely light cottons and linen in the summer, to warming wool in the colder months. The pattern is in four sizes to fit all head types.

XS 55-56cm

S 57-58cm

M 59-60cm

L 61-62cm

The second project is the traditional Tie. A lovely project to brighten up office attire, make a personal gift in a fun fabric or to be worn on special occasional such as a wedding to match your outfit.

Lastly is my most favourite neck wear, the Lavalliere Cravat. Sometimes called a Pussy Bow, this cravat has been worn by men and women down the centuries and looks stunning and distinctive today still. This lovely quick project is a super stash buster and you can have one to match every shirt, dress or outfit.

This sewing pattern is printed on two A0 sheets of high quality paper, complete with a fully illustrated instruction booklet.

You will need:

Half a meter of main fabric and half a meter of lining for hat. Recommend Vlieseline Decovil for the brim.

Half a meter of cotton lawn, cotton, polyester, silk, satin or similar for the Lavalliere cravat.

One meter of main fabric for the tie, fat quarter for the contrast tip and recommended Vlieseline S13 for the interfacing.
