The fashion of the roaring twenties was a fast change from the previous decades. Hemlines rose, shift dresses were popular and bobbed hair became a must. Women had been wearing hats for centuries and in the 1920 jazz era, they changed to suit the new age and everyone had at least one of the popular cloche.
Cloche hats sit close against the head and drape slightly near at least one ear. The customary tilt accentuates your facial structure and although great with a bob, they set off any hair style. They can be made with or without a brim and can be soft cut felt, stiffened fabric or knitted.
Custom sized to fit any head with suggested measurements for 5 sizes given: Infant (Toddler, Child, Adult, Adult XL)
The fashion of the twenties can be easily tweaked to suit contemporary style. Since the era still necessitated handmade clothes, a lot of patterns can be found and adopted to make at home. Cloche hats are some of the easiest fashion pieces to make yourself and due to the drape, they look stellar if knitted.

A hat is the perfect item to hand make for the winter coming up. It’s also a great gift idea for jazzing up the closet of other fashion conscious friends.
