Marthy’s Cloche

There’s a new item up in my store! The shaping in this cloche comes from mismatched curves in every seam – a gentle curve above and a more rounded one below. It took me a few tries to figure out how big the difference should be.  My first attempt didn’t have nearly enough difference between the curves and made a very narrow hat that would only have fit a cassowary. The second time I over did it and knew as soon as I’d sewn the first two pieces together that it curved too fast. But the third hat was just right. The sides curved up gently, making a round shape that could actually fit on a head!
