To cut in one piece and make in minutes
One little piece of bright felt by the yard, cut in a simple shape, a few quick stitches, no blocking at all — and, presto! — a hat. Gustavo, brilliant young millinery designer, makes headlines this season with his backswept, windblown styles. Here are five versions, simplified for easy success by amateurs. They’re crushproof for packing or tucking in a pocket — a traveler’s or part-time hat wearer’s dream.
Another pocket-size edition — this one with no crown at all / A tiny head shawl, securely anchored by a bicycle clip
Backswept with pleats — just enough to keep your hair in place / The Egyptian influence for a close-fitting hat / Softly draped beret that tilts to suit your hairstyle
