My mum in law lost her hair 14 years. She wears wigs when out but prefers hats indoors as they’re cooler. I found a pattern for ladies who have suffered hair loss. They’re designed to cover the hair line.
I up-cycled a top for my first attempt and she loves it!
Here’s a pic of me modelling it, I’d tucked my hair inside.
It only took 1/2 hour and that included tracing the pattern! Much quicker than knitting! I used my Overlocker for all the seams so it’s really neat inside, and there’s plenty of stretch in the seams.
what a great idea, and good fabric reuse.
I love this idea. Now I’ve got my mind thinking…
Great idea, glad you are not a #selfishsewer!!!! Has she ordered more???
Ohh, you could run her up a whole wardrobe of these. One for every outfit 🙂
Some fab designs there, even for those of us blessed with a healthy mop:)
Agree with sewchet, and why I love & collect similar hat patterns… and try to remember to slip one on even whilst at home, when the temp’s below zero. Really helps retain body heat!
Do you think it would work with non-stretch fabric? I want to make view C.
Hi, I made view C and the band which fits snug around the head needs to be a soft jersey fabric, but you could get away with using a light weight woven for the top.
