AD Challenge: Cote d’Azur Sun Hat from ShannonMac Designs

Hi everyone! I’ve been away from pattern making for several months, but I’m back with a brand new pattern. I’ve been spreading my wings, so to speak, and I’ve stepped outside my normal quilted box to release my very first wearable design!

It’s almost summer here on our side of the globe, and I’m a pale, pasty chick. I avoid the sun like a vampire. It doesn’t take long for me to turn lobster red, and I’ve had more than my fair share of sunburns in my life, especially on my face, shoulders, and the back of my neck. To avoid raising my risk of skin cancer even more, I decided I needed a big hat. And why not? They’re very fashionable these days, and much easier to put on than sunblock (which I’ll still wear!) Most of the wide-brimmed hats I see are some kind of woven style, but I wanted a fabric one, so it’s washable and keeps out ALL the sun’s rays. And this is it! Introducing the Cote d’Azur Sun Hat from ShannonMac Designs!
