You may like to use interfacing (iron on or sew in) to strengthen the outer fabric. Simply cut one interfacing piece for the TOP and SIDE and iron on before continuing to the next step or sew together in Step 2.

Please note this pattern uses only a 5mm seam allowance.

Match points A, B and C of the TOP RIGHT SIDES together with the corresponding points on the SIDE.

Pin and stitch the 5mm seam allowance.

Clip the curved edges of the seam allowance to allow it to lay flat. Turn RIGHT SIDES out and topstitch the seam allowance to the TOP following the seam allowance all around.

With WRONG SIDES out, fold the dart on the TOP together.

Pin ແລະ stitch.

Lay the two BRIM pieces RIGHT SIDES together. Pin and stitch the larger curve.

Turn RIGHT SIDES out and press.

Insert the plastic inner BRIM piece between the fabric.

With the BRIM INSERT inside the BRIM, ensure to pull the BRIM tight over it.

PIn in place then stitch close to the edge of the BRIM INSERT to secure in place.

Cut the petersham tape length:
Length = hat size in cms + 3 ຊັງ​ຕີ​ແມັດ

Starting from the centre back seam line of the lining, pin the petersham tape around the main cap lining, leaving the 5mm seam allowance visible.

Fold 1cm of the tape under to neaten the edge when you complete the circle. Overlap the tape by 1cm.

Stitch the inner edge of the petersham tape to the lining.

Match the centre point of the BRIM to the centre front point (point B) of the main cap.

Pin and stitch the raw edge of the BRIM to the main cap.

Insert the lining WRONG SIDES together with the outer fabric of the cap.

Fold back the seam allowances so that they are hidden inside the cap behind the petersham tape.

Pin in place carefully, then stitch around the outer edge of the petersham tape directly to the main cap. You will need to pull back the upper part of the brim to avoid sewing through it. Sew only through the BRIM piece containing the BRIM INSERT and circumference of the cap.

Complete the cap by using small hand stitches to hold the TOP front of the cap to the BRIM. Approximately 15-20cms distributed around the centre front of the cap can be secured if desired.
