Did it look like the photo/drawing advertised once you were done sewing with it? Sure did, well for the most part. I think the ones in the pattern must be bigger because they seem like the brim comes out a little farther.
Dealing with the pattern: Just 5 pages to print, very easy to put together.
Level of difficulty: Advanced beginner
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Loved everything. Nothing to dislike.
Fabric Used: Quilting cotton for both sides
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: none.... Well, I didn't hand stitch the second cap like the instructions said. I hate hand stitching and avoid it like the plague, so I just top stitched it :-)
Would you sew it again? Yep! As soon as my sissy has her baby and we find out what it is, I'll be making the smaller size for her. Also, I only did 3 additional rows of stitching on the brim (4 total); next time I'll do six.
Would you recommend it to others? Yes! Can't beat free!!
Conclusion: Perfect little unisex bucket hat. Bonus that it's reversible! Any tips on how to get Miss K to keep it on???
