Inspired by beret wearing fashionista’s of the 1930’s, the Marlene Beret is named for the icon that is Marlene Dietrich, who really knew how to wear a beret!


Berets are wardrobe classics that suit everyone, work with any style and can be made from a diverse range of fabrics. They also require very little fabric so are a wonderful stash buster and don’t take much time to sew up making them perfect for times when you don’t have much time but want to add a little newness to your wardrobe. Marlene also makes a wonderful gift if you’re up for a bit of selfless sewing.


A quick and simple make that is suitable for the confident beginner or intermediate seamstress.


You can have lots of fun trying out different fabrics for your Marlene Beret and create lots of different looks!
