New and improved, – a wee proper gatsby for Benjamin Michael!

Som jeg sa/tastet så ble prototypen i how-to’n vel kantete og politimann… Greit om en skal sy til karneval!

Så i dag modifiserte jeg litt + laget innlegg av et syltetøysspann..

1 Ben pattern

Laget snipp som tidligere vist ved hjelp av mål, men etterpå rundet jeg den av for et mykere inntrykk.

2 insert

Dette er innlegget, – ytre bue tegnet opp etter det fatet jeg brukte for kronemål, dvs 22 cm, –indre bue er streket opp ved hjelp av et stort rundt brett.

Jeg rundet av kantene før jeg sydde det inn, altså! LOL

3 insert tucked in

Jeg klippet ned rettsiden litt før innsying i kantbåndene.

5 so far

As I mentioned the prototype in my tutorial came out too pointy and policeman-like… Fine for a carneval!

The way you measure etc still holds true but:

today I modified it a bit + made an insert from a jam-box…

Made a panel after measurements as shown in the tut but I rounded the edges for a softer impression.

I was very unhappy about the floppy peak/bill

- that’s why I chose to stiffen it way more!

The plastic insert’s outer curve was drawn using the plate I had chosen for the crown’s measurements, – the inner one was fashioned with the help of a large serving tray.

Naturally I rounded off the sharp ends before inserting it into the cap’s peak/bill! LOL

In addition I reduced the straight side of the peak so that it would be hidden between the outer and inner edges of the cap.

My darling Sue! *hugs silly*

You mustn't do that! If a real seamstress should happen to peep in she'd laugh her head off!

But for starting out I'm OK!
*smug smile*

And as a siggy-pro' I know you can properly judge my new background and header!!
