I got Betz White's cadet hat pattern on a whim while buying another pattern from her shop. I thought it would be a step up from my usual baseball hat when I want a brim. I took her up on the "make do" idea and used fabric from old jeans for the outside
|Bad top stitching|
|Better side stitching on the crown|
I'm going to give this one more try using some old khaki's and the interfacing. At $12.95 for the pattern, I've got to get more than one hat from this!
