new pattern THE AVIATOR

A little cap inspired by a truly inspiring women.

Amelia Earhart was one of histories great adventurers, an aviation pioneer with a fabulous sense of style.  She disappeared in 1937 somewhere over the Pacific Ocean during an attempt to fly around the world, a mystery which continues to intrigue people to this day.  

THE AVIATOR takes very little fabric to make, in fact both of the photo samples were patched together using leftovers.  To highlight the contrasts top stitching using a thick thread and a zig-zag stitch was added.  You have the option of adding buttons and a frill or just keep it simple.

Of course I can't help myself, the more fabric textures, colours, patterns the better.  A tutorial showing HOW TO sew with heavy top stitching thread can be found right here and the pattern for THE AVIATOR is now available from my Etsy shop.
