Character is Naoto Shirogane from Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4
This is the hat Naoto wears!!
Reference picture: [link]
I originally bought a base hat, but it was inaccurate, so I hand made it instead.
Made out of cotton with lightweight interfacing ironed on in the inside. There's 5 separate triangular panels sewn together (which should be accurate according to the main references I was using, they're very inconsistent). I then sewed on a rectangular band which was cotton (no interfacing as it was double layered anyway). The peak of the hat is cotton with buckram inside it to give it its shape. The button at the top is a button I had with fabric covered over it - I wanted it to match! The striped band going along the hat was different shades of fabric sewn together, the top part was machine stitched on and the bottom part was carefully hand sewn on.
I do have the buckle... But I lost it because I love my old hat XD;
I shall update this photo when I find it!!
I've taken progress pictures along the way, which means I can do another sewing tutorial!! It's really rather simple so a tutorial might not be needed, but I'll do one anyway! XD
