R108- E-Pattern 1940s Hat Wardrobe

Size 22" Head

Beginning to intermediate sewing knowledge recommended.

This listing is for an E-Pattern to print yourself at home on your home printer's USA letter and A4 sized paper. This pattern also includes the copy shop  A0 files


This Resto-Vival pattern is based on an original period hat pattern from 1940, but is suitable for looks from 1938-1942.

Perfect vintage hats to fit a variety of situations. The beret and fedora look great with suits and separates. The looped turban is dressy enough for dresses. The wrapped turban is a great option for sportswear or for the WWII factory working gal.

This pattern is available only in size 22" head size. Smaller and larger sizes will need to make adjustments.

Included are instructions based on the original period instructions, with some additions and revisions for clarity.

Resto-Vival™ Patterns are original historic patterns that have been restored and revived. Original patterns are usually available only in single sizes, precut from tissue paper and totally unprinted, with details like grainlines and darts indicated only by small perforations. Resto-Vival™ patterns are clearly marked with drawn and labeled markings. These markings aid the modern sewer in understanding the markings of the original pattern and the construction of the garment. Resto-Vival™ patterns follow the period shapes of the original patterns, maintaining the historical accuracy of the completed garment. Original period instructions are included. These instructions are text only (unless otherwise noted) and fairly minimal, especially compared to instructions for modern patterns. At least an intermediate knowledge of dressmaking and a good familiarity with pattern construction is suggested. You may choose to have a modern or period sewing book handy to help with basic construction methods that the pattern instructions do not cover in detail. Also, fitting a muslin mockup is strongly recommended, as all garments were meant to be worn over period foundation garments or corsetry.
