A béret for the dawn parade

Some of you may remember I rediscovered a jacket, made when I was 14, a few years ago and with a little tarting-up it’s back in my wardrobe.
Cleaning up in the weekend, I found the left-over fabric, so spent an enjoyable few hours on Sunday crafting myself a new béret. I used a pattern made years ago while studying milinery, but this one is similar (plus it has a tutourial). I plan to wear it to the dawn parade on Anzac Day (Thursday).
Kanzashi flowers (purple brooches clipped to hat) were from another project. The blue flower was made simply by turning through a bias strip of fabric and shaping into petals.
Brooch clips available from Made on Marion.
