Plaid Hat Vogue V8403 and Pants Simplicity S2315 To Match

 

 
 
 

The brown plaid pant suit is complete!  I actually finished the pants and hat almost two weeks ago.  The pants is Simplicity S2315.  I've used this pattern twice before.  So I won't review the pattern again.  You can read the initial review here. 

The hat is another view of Vogue 8403.  There was enough fabric leftover to make a hat.  So I did.  Lately, I'm trying to make use of as many remnants and scraps from previous projects.  I have a really tough time tossing out pieces that are a half yard or more.  

 





This hat was really fun to make.  I completed it while watching a Hallmark Christmas movie.  So, it took less than two hours to make.  I changed a few of the construction steps.  Nothing earth shaking.  It was a matter of taking my time with the stitching and pressing as needed.  

 



 

I enjoyed the process and will probably make at least one more view of this hat pattern.

Happy Sewing!

  1. The whole outfit turned out great! I wonder why more people don't sew hats. I mean, almost everyone needs a hat at some point to protect from summer sun, winter chill, rain, etc.

  4. The fit of the jacket and slacks is lovely. Very nice job. Hoping next year I can make a suit and have a place to wear it!

  6. Beautifully made suit. And the hat is the perfect "topper". You definitely look sharp in the whole ensemble.
