I recently received the Oliver and S book, 'Little Things to Sew', and the first project from it I tried was the Bucket Hat pattern.
My niece had her 2nd birthday coming up, so she was the recipient of the first one.
|The hat brim IS even - just doesn't look like it with the jaunty angle teddy wears it!|
As we do not live near by, here it is modelled by one of the teddies. The hat is reversible, so can be worn either way.
Along with this I also made a skort using a Scientific Seamstress pattern. I used the same lime green gingham poplin as for the hat.
This pattern is a downloadable PDF, with extremely clear instructions and diagrams, and individual pattern pieces for each size. The only alteration I made was to insert adjustable elastic into the waistband, as my niece is quite small.
I would definitely recommend these patterns and have a couple more I intend to make soon.
