One of my favorite type of hat making involves reconstructing garments into hats. I love using coats because they offer so many great elements. There is a nice amount of fabric, lining, and buttons.

For this project I chose a black woman’s rain jacket. Size XXL, with nice tabs on the sleeves, watercolor painted lining, and 12 large silver buttons. All for $5.99

I took apart all the pieces of the coat. Separated the rain proof material from the lining and removed 12 buttons.

The sleeve tab became the top of the hat crown. The collar became the brim. I used 2 of the buttons and sewed them on with red thread for a little contrast. I used the original lining to line the hat.

The final product of this reconstruction is a great water proof hat with fun elements. The Silver buttons and red thread add a touch of whimsy. The asymmetric brim adds a modern flair to a 1920’s shape.

Rain jacket from Salvation Army, $5.99

Watercolor lining

12 large silver buttons!

 

The tab on the sleeve became the top of the crown. The collar became the brim.

 

The coat lining became the lining for the hat.

 

Water proof hat with a 1920's flair.

 

The great thing about making hats is that they don’t require a lot of fabric. Since the coat was a XXL, I still have enough material for at least 2 more hats!
