Ottoman for the Man – Finished Hat!

In order to reduce the amount of weight on his head, the ‘turban’ is a padded doughnut of cloth wrapped in strips of fabric.

Ottoman for the Man – Tall Cap Finished

The ½” increase it size did the trick.  The hat fits!

Ottoman for the Man – Tall Cap, Take Two

I’ve decided to go with an extra ½” to the circumference.  If it’s too small there’s nothing to do, but if it’s a little too big I can pad the brim.

The main shell is done, but it still needs lining.

Ottoman for the Man – Tall Cap Failure

Well, that sucks.  I ended up with a very nice looking hat, but it was about ¼” too small in circumference, and gave him a headache.  I tried to take it apart to widen it, but destroyed it in the process.

Time to start over, this time ¼” wider.

Ottoman for the Man – Tall Cap

I’ve started work on the pattern for the conical hat under the turban.  I’m going with a basic conical hat (like a fez but taller), angled slightly towards the back.

Ottoman for the Man – Headwear

For those who know me, they know I’m a big fan of hats in the SCA.  I don’t have a lot of my own (yet), but I really like them.  With that in mind, my sweetie needs proper Ottoman headwear.

They all seem to start with a conical hat as a base, and then have a turban wrapped around that.  As you can see, these things can get pretty big.
