Introduction: How to Sew a Beret

Picture of How to Sew a Beret

Marc Jacobs berets and winter! were my inspiration to create this beret. I used old 100% wool sweater in beautiful petrol color. Wool is very warm and perfect for winter but you may use different fabric, the most important thing is that this fabric should be elastic. Sewing beret is easy and if you'll use few tricks, which I showed in tutorial, it will be even easier.

Step 1: Before
