I’ve been watching a few of your videos for about an hour now. I’ve learned much. I’m not one of these frilly clothes making SEWciopaths. I have an industrial machine and I’ve done boat canopies and tarps. I’m going to try a few of your bag patterns. Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge!!

This inspires me and gives me a lot of encouragement when it comes to making caps. though I don't have a sewing machine, maybe I can do it by hand and I think it will take me forever in the process but still would like to do it!. Thank you so much for this wonderful tutorial. I'm waiting for more videos from you guys. Keep up!

I enjoyed watching even though I'm sure I won't be doing this as I don't have the skill or machines but the sewing around the curve and pulling the fabric without pins: so impressed.

Hello everybody,
I downloaded, print on cardboard and cut the pattern.
For the top stitching technique I did a bit of research and found the mechanical piece "baby lock belt loop binder" that you can fix on your regular sewing machine. And you can buy two double needles (approx. 2$) for this technique, makes it easier.
The tutorial is easy and once you understood how to fix every parts, you'll be comfortable with doing a few caps.

Thanks ProperFitClothing Co.

coucou !! j'ai suivi votre tuto chez moi et j'y suis arrivé !! j'avoue, j'ai pas du tout le même matériel que vous (aucun en commun en fait ) mais avec ma machine à coudre et des petits bidouillages pied presseur/griffe d'entrainement/ fil et aiguille j'ai réussi à obtenir un résultat similaire ouf !
merci beaucoup !

How long do these usually take per hat once you get the hang of it and are prepared would you say? @properfit

Does anyone have some tips and tricks to doing the sweatband? the last one I did took me hours to get it on right. There has to be a easier way. I want to make another hat but I am dreading having to deal with the sweatband part. Also your sizing tape (the white strip) that makes the hat look better, is not on your stores web page. I looked everywhere. Where can I buy it?

Hi, just wondering if this is an updated pattern version? I have the cap pattern but didn’t get the back tab or the inside edge fabric pieces. Only got the 3 pieces with my pattern. Any way of getting the other couple pieces to make this cap? Thanks

Where to buy the fabric for the main 5 panels for making the cap?
You description has listed other items to make kit.
But a link also to fabric is much appreciated.
Thank you!
