Its a goddamn shame that many of these historical patterns has fallen into the hands of greedy leeches.
Why cant people be allowed to make what they want without paying shitloads of money?

At risk of derailing the thread, would you care to elaborate, sir?

If I were to guess, I'd say he's making reference to any number of reproduction militaria establishments that charge an arm and a leg for similar caps.

This looks so good, ive been looking for something like this for ever! i was just wondering is it okay to mod the patterns a bit so that the peak comes a bit higher? and i want it to be stiff at the front.

if you scroll down to the bottom of this page, thats the shape of cap i want to make. I am NOT a Nazi!!! Just like the caps.

I love this pattern. I even went and bought a sewing machine just to try this. Alas I cant print all the pages. Any chance of getting the files reposted or messaged or some other computer magic? Thanks

I just split all the seams on one of my old combination cap covers to create patterns. I don't know if this will work. I know in the US, soldiers and sailors used to pull the rubber stiffener out of there caps to give it a crusher like look. Today's caps have a metal band that can't really be removed and in today's military you'd get reamed for doing it anyway.  I hope eventually to come up with a usable pattern. I'd like to make a cap with a U boat commander-esk peak to it after I get this all figured out. What? I like the German style peaked hats I think they're cool. It's not a political statement the bundespolitzi still wear them. I'm first generation German I think it's hard wired in there somewhere. Grin

Ok for what it's worth. Trying this as my very first sewing project is akin to learning skydiving by correspondence course while falling out of the plane. So far I destroyed a combination cap cover to recreate the pattern. It came out pretty good using denim material. Please don't look at the stitching too close. The brim is giving me fits. I started with a web belt for a stiffener but broke my machine's needle. I will go back to the sewing store and suffer the pretty frekeled redhead's look of pity as I try and figure out what to do next. I will have this hat!

Step 4 won't load for me nor is step 8 showing up at all. Is there anything important in those two steps? I am going to try my hand at this cap in leather. I saw one in the recent past and want to build one! Thanks so much for the pattern! It was a difficult journey finding this! 2 days of internet search, but alas, It has been found!

I will see what I can find. In the meantime

Do we have a place where we can archive clothing patterns & etc, easily found?

Hello to all,  First off, THANK YOU for this thread!!!!  Why? Because I have been looking for a Crusher cap pattern so that I might make the one missing part of my "Forbidden Planet" uniform.....The "Officers" Crush Cap"!   I have noticed that the 4th page of the instructions will not print out, or even show!   Might I PLEASE prevail on one of the board's members to post it for me?
    I am a 62 year old Fully disabled Viet-Nam veteran who has always enjoyed "Forbidden Planet" and wanted the Officers' crush cap.

    I am also a fan of the "old" RPG of "Space 1889" and miss it greatly.   For those not in the know, "S:1889" was one of THE 1st Steam Punk RPGs.

    Thank You All in advance for any and all help and Greeting from Fairborn, Ohio, U.S. of A.

    Yours truly
    Larry A.
