Introduction: How to Sew a Beret
Runner Up in the
Hats and Headpieces Challenge
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

This sweater was very warm so I hope beret will be similar and will be able to wear it during winter.
Step 2: Sewing

iron out and cut out little triangles to finish round edges (photo 3)
