 For a complete look to this bolero jacket and headband pattern, I wanted to add this enchanting hat, inspired after the vintage cloche hats, and my love of seeing young girls in hats, prompted this stylish hat design, 'Belle', takes its namesake with a play on words for both the bell-shape of the hat, and its meaning: French for beautiful ~ once again a perfect finishing touch to my bolero jacket and headband pattern, 'Kimana', as the headband can be added around the base of the hat for added decoration, and taken off to be used on its own.
