A Hat to Match
Just a little out-and-about outfit, featuring one of my final sewing projects of 2012, a beret to match my teal pencil skirt. I used an early 50s hat pattern, which also has another two designs in the same envelope (which I hope to make available as PDF soon).
Although it's still waiting for a new set of buttons (you'd be amazed how hard it is to find a set of seven 1" black Art Deco coat buttons), I wore my lovely 1940s coat, giving it a furry makeover with the cuffs I wore ice skating and a faux fur cowl collar to match.
Wool beret, made by me from a 50s pattern; 1940s coat, ebay; Wool skirt, made by me; Gloves, vintage fair; Faux fur cuffs and cowl collar, Christmas gift from Mother; Peacock rhinestone brooch, given to me by my sister; Shoes, Marks & Spencer.
