brrrr beret - mccall's 9448

>> Thursday, December 9, 2010

Well it has been a long time since my last pattern and alas you only get a hat. Now that isn't to say I haven't been sewing up a storm (knitting, too), just nothing suitable for the blog.

I did make this ultra cool beret though from a pattern I found at thrift store in Camas. The fabric is wool from a maxi skirt I bought years ago but never wear. I know maxi skirts are making a come back, but I am convinced that they are never a good choice for someone as short at me, no matter what the magazines say. So, into the cut up pile it went.

Evidence that the skirt did once exist. Sure, I look like a bag lady, but at least the scenery is to.die.for -

The hat - 
Crummy picture quality but whatev.
The jacket I am wearing I found at the Goodwill bins. On second thought, it deserves it's own post. My vintage coat collection is both hideous and awesome. More to come...

Love the new blog layout.
And the hat is awesome. I also understand what you mean by being short and maxi skirts do not look good :) I will never wear them
