I don't think this is really haute couture, but it is my version of HAT COUTURE. I wear hats all the time. I made this one yesterday afternoon in my effort to think spring. I think I will be wearing this as my gardening hat next summer.
Every seamstress has a stash of fabric that we say is aging to perfection. I was digging around in my "stash" of fabrics and I found several large pieces of polished cotton which works great for these simple hats. I think I may make a small tote to match.
Hats can be fast projects. This particular pattern also has some large billed baseball cap styles with a bow in the back to make them a bit more feminine.
