The kind you find in a second hand store.



This beret I made from wool I dyed myself a few weeks ago. 


The pattern is my 30s hat repro pattern. I highly recommend it. It went together wonderfully, though next time I'll use a fabric that isn't so thick.

The pattern is 3 pieces, the crown, the side and the inner lining. I then, as instructions said, lined the opening with grosgrain. I bought some vintage grosgrain made of a cotton/nylon at a flea market a few months ago. It went perfect.

A very close stitch at the top of the
grosgrain's edge.

The raspberries and blackberries are vintage millinery fruit. I think that was the greatest touch!

And now for my narcissistic pleasure, more photos!



Oddly, I think this photo is the most 30s looking :)

Have a great Monday!!
