Default Weyrwoman Costume HELP!

Meriah has decided she wants to be a Junior Wyerwoman for Halloween this year, complete with firelizard. Somewhere I have the pattern for the firelizard. Any suggestion on the riding hat?

From what I've seen, it's kinda like a world war 2 flight cap...which is in turn the same basic shape as a 15th century arming cap. I can see if I can get a pattern for the latter from one of my re-enactment friends, and you can adjust it accordingly?

I've sent you a PM with a link to a reliable website. the best thing to do is to just 'customise' the cap as you see fit. You'll definitely want different materials. If you make two of the same pattern, you could even make it inside out, place something in the middle to pad it out slightly, and then turn it inside out. ^^
