Ive been on a pattern buying binge again. I got this pattern on Etsy and the seller is in my faves. I like the round helmet. Not so fond of the rest of the hats offered, but the helmet will do me just fine. What I want is a 20's style cloche. I dont want a pdf pattern - I wanted a good old fashioned tissue paper one. I almost bought a cloche the other night, but it was a tad too small with my dreads. I just need that basic head shape and Im too time challenged to start from scratch - even though it would be easy enough, I suppose. I can tweak this one into something fun for the new vintage inspired fall wardrobe that will magically appear in my closet one day soon.

I will often tackle jobs with my well honed stitch witchery skills that others fear to take on. I love taking a garment that needs repair and breathing new life into it again. My brides are usually the off beat types of all ages and persuasions who want something different to wear on their special day - something not possible to purchase off the rack. Ive made things for rock stars, for the hard to fit, for the girl next door, for the tribal belly dance kings and queens!
I take inspiration from the days of olde and the world's diverse cultures.
And when I'm not making awesome things, I'm trying to help save the world by getting in touch with the land and changing my old ways of doing things..........
