I love love love this fabric. This is vintage wool crepe in the darkest inky midnight blue. It is lightweight and has a lovely drape to it. The fabric is woven through with a twisted white thread making a regular pattern of dashes. This wool perfectly suits the style of this beret. It's got a very nautical feel. It reminds me of something Carole Lombard or Greta Garbo might have worn with a pair of wide legged white trousers and a navy blazer. Love!
I've lined this beret in lightweight black silk to maintain the drape of the beret.
This hat will fit a 22" head size.
