Here's the story...

of a lovely lady,
who was sewing clothes each and every day,
all of them had bust adjustments, and other changes,
but there were no berets.

Here's the story, of a great designer,
who was busy making patterns of her own,
all of them were bags or hats or even dresses,
but they were all alone.

Til the one day when this lady met this designer,
and they knew that it was much more than a dream,
that they would somehow help each other,
and that's the way that they became the beret team.

And here's the beret Liesl whipped up at Sewjourn from Nikki's new pattern, modelled by (clockwise from top left) Liesl, Cathy, Caitlin, Bec, Alice (who seems to have lost her beret), Melanie, me and Cam, and Nikki wearing her own beret.

You can buy the pattern for this fab beret in Nikki's shop.

You can read Liesl's beret review here.

  1. THAT'S FANTASTIC!!! LOVE IT!!! (and thanks for the plug!)

  2. Heehee :) that came out really cute!

  3. Ahhh, you guys certainly are Brady-bunch-esque! Very cute. The beret is a winner (of course, does Nikki EVER produce anything that isn't?!).

    Sewjourn sounded fantastic, *sigh*.

  4. I love that beret so very much. Am off to Niki's to order just now.

    Sewjourn better get an extension happening because next time I come over there is going to be one hell of a party up there!

  5. Ah ha ha ha you crack me up! I never knew you had great poetry skills too. Any more hidden talents by any chance?

  6. Great Song, my beret pattern arrived on Friday, can't wait to have a go

  7. You made me laugh so hard I spat cough everywhere! That's hilarious!!

  8. Love it, I sang all the way through!

  9. Gypsy now I can't get that song out of my head! Great post though
