Hat Patterns & Frames
About Denise Nadine Design Patterns

All patterns include comprehensive instructions and both frame and cover patterns (where applicable). This makes building and completing the hat much easier.

Now, anyone can make a hat without any special training!! You just need to know how to sew.

A Word About Hat Foundations:
A hat foundation can be made from a variety of materials including 2-Ply crown buckram, 1-Ply buckram, cloth, crinoline, straw, felt, and more. Or, they can be constructed from a mixture of materials. Cover in the fabric of your choice.

Denise Nadine Design Foundations:
Buckram Frame Patterns are designed for 2-Ply crown buckram and 19 gauge millinery wire unless otherwise specified.

Fabric Patterns can be made from any fabric or as specified in instructions.
