The Bob Fauve is the new pattern I give to you for free and to help those who hesitate to sew this hat, I offer you a photo tutorial. The link to the pattern is HERE. At Stragier haberdashery I made a selection of fabrics adapted to this pattern and it is the tweed/cotton poplin duo that I choose to sew. A bit of Chanel tweed, nothing like it to make everything more chic (even a bob ;) )!This fabric is gorgeous (and I'm definitely going to make time to sew myself a new Maison Fauve jacket...it's coming soon!). I'm putting the link of the fabric HERE Stragier also offers a whole selection of linings, and I chose this one, to fully interlace the tweed. This prevented it from fraying, and above all this interfacing provided the necessary rigidity to the pattern. The interfacing is to be found HERE
All right, let's go, here's the step-by-step photo montage of Bob Fauve:Prior to your sewing steps, remember to interface your pieces. Transfer the pattern markings A and B to the pieces on the side.
- Assemble your top pieces of bob fabric and lining back to back, and in the seam allowance (about 0.7 cm).
- Close your piece on the fabric side by folding it right sides together. Press the seam open.
Do the same with your piece on the lining side. Assemble your pieces in the seam allowance (approx. 0.7 cm) back to back, making sure that the seams of each piece are facing each other.
3. Assemble edge-to-edge and fabric against fabric your bob top and side according to the areas marked B. Position the vertical seam of your "side" piece in front of the small notch marked on the "top" of the bob, this will be the middle back head marker.Iron well to get in shape (if necessary with a ham to manage the ironing of rounded volumes). Trim your seam with a bias, this will make it clean and more resistant to rubbing.
