Translations and Help with Patterns

Translation Request – Alice’s Sun hat

June 13, 2012

Alice from Sommet Outta Nuthin… needed some help with translation for this pattern. I only translated the materials for kids size here as that’s the one she needed.

Translations for Pg 44  UV Cut Hat from Pochee Vol. 9

Name of parts of hat

  • トップクラウン – Top Crown (The circle piece right at the top)
  • サイドクラウン – Side Crown (The sides of the hat that forms a cylinder)
  • ブリム – Brim

Materials (Kids size only)

  • Surface cloth – Stripe cotton 90x45cm
  • lining cloth – Plain Lawn 100x20cm
  • Thick Interfacing 100x30cm
  • Extra thick interfacing 50x50cm
  • 1cm wide bi-fold bias tape 85cm

Finished size 54cm

How to make 

Attach thick interfacing to surface fabric for Top of Crown and side of crown pieces.
Attach extra thick interfacing to both surface and lining fabric for hat brim pieces

  1. Right sides together, sew together side seams for side crown pieces and press seams to one side. (for both surface and lining fabric)
  2. Sew top of crown to side crown (right sides together) (for both surface and lining fabric)
  3. Sew side seams of brim pieces (for both surface and lining fabrics).
  4. Temporary stitch surface and lining brim pieces together.
  5. Finish outer edge of brim with bias

  7. Make and attach loop for lace.
  8. From pt 6, clip curves in seam allowance, sew surface crown to lining crown pieces together (wrong sides together)
  9. Insert lace into loop and tie in place.

Note that the instructions are rather brief. Most of the instructions are on the diagrams which are quite self-explanatory.

Hope this will help you Alice. Let us see your hat when you’re done! 🙂

    Thank you SO much! I have only got to the tracing so far (I am very slow) but I will share on your flickr group when I have a hat… I just joined the group and posted photos of my books so you can see what I have =0)
