Making of Flat Cap H19

Ladies Flat Cap H19

An idea is sketched on a piece of brown paper.

Once happy with the design, parts of the pencil sketch are made permanent

Selecting fabric and accessoires

The drawing is transferred onto the back of the fabric with tailor's carbon paper

The transfered drawing is now being hand stiched so it can bee seen on the right side of the fabric

Pin-tucking along the markings

The drawing for the main part of the flat-cap is completed in pin-tucks and ready to be cut out.

The side parts of the flat-cap are done in the same manner as the steps above. The lining also has to be prepared and one by one, the cap is being completed. It is a lengthy process but seeing a design come to live is most satisfactory.
