Today I'm going to be looking at the classic pillbox hat. This style of hat is a classic style of vintage hat and can still be found today in a more modern version of the original.
The pillbox hat was made famous during the 1960s by jackie Kennedy who liked to the style with classic channel style suits. One of the most famous of her outfits with this style hat is that pink and black channel suit.
During my pillbox hat research I have found vintage sewing and knitting patterns going back to the 1940s. This style of hat is relatively simple to make at home depending on how fancy you want to get.

Another type of pillbox hat is that of the air stewardess of the 1960s as seen recently in the popular tv program Pan Am.
