    Merci beaucoup for the hat patterns! Have you discovered the patterns available through the French National Library? There are 100s of magazines online, with many (many!) sewing, knitting, and crocheting patterns, plus embroidery and various other crafts, in them from Les Dimanches de la Femme, La Femme de France, and more. I managed to glean a ton of hats — my personal obsession — from 1916-1938. Go to and search for the names of the magazine. Sadly, they don’t seem to have Le Petit Echo de la Mode scanned. It was very time-consuming to go through them, issue by issue, and you *can* search for keywords, but then you miss other things (like the ads, or amazing things you didn’t know you needed).

    One thing about the second link with the hat patterns (and I hate to complain, when you’ve been so incredibly generous), but the bottom of the page is cut off, and “La toque” is incomplete. 🙂

    Thanks again!
