    40s Sophisticated Millinery & Purse

    Elegant caps fit for royalty & easy to make bag for the modern co-ordinated person.

    View (B), a beret worn tilted far forward on the head, has a pretty extension at the back in place of the more common 1940s / 50's band. The purse has straps which act as a drawstring, passing through sewn-on metal rings. The close-fitting cap (A) is described as a 'calot', meaning a close-fitting hat without a brim. It was more commonly called a Juliet cap.

    Offered here as a Paper Pattern or the Original. This pattern is also available as a Digital Download

    IMPORTANT
    All seams are indicated by broken lines, all cutting lines by continuous double lines. Cut apart each pattern piece then CUT PATTERN AND MATERIAL TOGETHER THROUGH THE WHITE CENTER OF THE DOUBLE LINE. The margin falls away as you cut through the pattern and material. Every mark is important for the construction, so before removing the pattern from the material, mark carefully with tracing wheel, tailor’s chalk or thread markings.
