The general style of hat is correct. There are some construction challenges with that particular example.

If you are in the market, Originals By Kay has a few examples. One of the ladies posted a pattern and instructions on her blog, but I've forgotten who it was. Several folks on here do custom work, especially if size is an issue.

Good luck.

A few of the elements that strike me as non-PC in this example are the exposed ragged seams in portions of the cap, and the turn-and-sewn bulk of the brim (pressing around a brim, with felled on facings, is a low-bulk option.)

could you please explain this with more detail?  i'm attempting to make one, lol.  i'm already doing the top/disc with the seam inside... i fudged my way through the brim, but i'll redo it if need be.

mine is a layer of wool, with a layer of canvas inside {left over from my corset}... the top edge is turned over/stitched and then another piece of wool is on the other side and whip stitched-ish.

i know it's not quite symmetrical, lol, it works for me though.

Yes, that's the basic premise of the faced construction. I'm not sure if a cap would have fashion fabric on the brim facing or not, personally.
