The Lucent Visor is made with an internal structure that keeps the hat flexible but firm so it can re-emerge from your bag in shape.
Instructions include a helpful description on notions required and clear steps with photos and illustrations.

The hat band is elasticised and custom sized in construction, fitting most, from kids up to a 62 cm crown.
Seam allowances are included in the pattern.
Suitable fabrics: almost anything goes - mid weight woven works best.
