Tauruscat: Sweatband & Webbing

To make the Tauruscat helmet fit different sized heads I have borrowed from a system that I've seen used in hardhats. You start with a sweatband large enough to accommodate the biggest head you want to fit, then add what I'm calling webbing, with a lace running through it that can be tightened up for smaller heads.

The top of this photo shows the pattern pieces for both the sweatband and the webbing, and at the bottom is the two parts stitched together, viewed from the top.

This is how it looks inserted into the helmet. The sweatband will get riveted to the skull to keep it in place.
