This is Sayaka Akamine’s first book on hats, introducing a total of 20 pieces based on 10 different patterns and arrangements.
The book is a collection of casually cute designs that can be worn from going out to just about anywhere without hesitation.
The book also shows how the same pattern can be used in two ways, with different brim widths, with different fabrics, and with different tastes depending on the fabrics used.
Large photos are used to explain in detail the important sewing methods for hat making, such as how to sew a beautiful curve, how to stitch, aligning the top of the crown, sewing a thick part, sewing between cords, piping the brim edge, sewing a size ribbon, dovetailing, how to measure and adjust the head circumference, and more.
The large photos are used to explain in detail. Because hats are the key to fashion, the book provides detailed explanations so that they can be made beautifully. The actual large-size paper is easy to copy as there are no overlapping parts.
