About this article
To make a top hat, start cutting out two large circles of sturdy, stiff fabric to the rim, two rectangles for the sides and a smaller circle for the hat. Then stack the large circles on top of each other, sew them together around the edges and cut out the middle so that the hole fits on the head. Then sew the rectangles along the short sides to form a cylinder. When you have turned all the pieces inside and out, sew the border to one end of the cylinder and the small circle to the other end. Finally, finish off any excess fabric and turn the hat aside. For tips on adding a band around your hat, read on!
