Bucket hat top not matching

    Hi there,
    I have printed the bucket hat pattern to scale and the pieces do not match up exactly. Every time I am attaching the oval/top to the crown the oval has excess fabric. I am matching markings, sewing 1/2″ on the seams and have cut pattern exact so am not sure where I am going wrong?

    Even when you’ve got everything right, seeing hats can be tricky.
    I find it helps to mark, or stitch, along the 1/2″ seam lines and make sure I’m pinning at the seam line, not trying to match up raw edges.
    It also helps to pin the four quarter marks (front, back and each side) and then ease the fabric inbetween to fit.
    You may also need to clip into the seam allowances of the crown in order to make it fit the lid.
    I’ll see if I can find a photo tutorial anywhere….

    The photos help to show how you get the lid set into the crown.
    Good luck.

    Thank you @lightningmcstitch. I will see how I go on the next one. They have not turned out terribly just do not want gathering at all.

    Thanks again
