The Beret

Added Dec 6, 2010

Big Foot, United...






My Mom has been having my sister and I wearing berets since I can’t remember. But, my head could no longer fit into a five year olds beret, and I didn’t want to shell out any “dough” for a really good one. So, I made one. It’s made out a heavy boiled wool I bought for a coat I “was” (long story) making. I think it turned out really nice. I get lots of complements too! It looks so, “Tes Tres Chic”. I just made up a make pattern.

Material Notes

Boiled wool




Fall, Winter
Garment Type

    can you put up a pattern? i really like how this looks… or maybe you can just cut out like a mini pattern so i can see the exact shape of the pieces that need to be put together

      yes please, a pattern would be fantastic. just a layout of the different pattern pieces and maybe a short explanation on how to measure each piece for your head size.
