I have been sewing clothes since 12, first on a hand powered Singer with a choice of lock stitch and reverse, and oh boy what production went on with it. I remember with great pride the bakers boy hat created during The Beatles first years of fame. Unfortunately I have no picture of this milliners perfection but I do have one of this my latest effort!
It took three machines and two hours to complete and I wonder which gave me the most joy to make, probably the hat . Anyhow in case you would like to create your own version of this, it is a McCalls 6612 pattern. Very easy , not even a zip to trouble you. The lovely heavy weight fabric I bought online from http://www.dittofabrics.co.uk I recommend the site.
