WWII era WASP beret

This was another custom commission. I was asked to recreate a WWII era WASP beret. After much research and a great deal of color debate, here is what I came up with. The customer will add the WASP insignia to the beret.

About Susan

Hi! My name is Susan and I am a historian, seamstress, teacher, mother, and wife. My passion for history has manifested itself in the art of recreating clothing from different periods of time. Growing up in the American South, I am heavily schooled in the art of recreating clothing from the 19th century. After nearly a decade of immersing myself primarily in the Victorian period, I found the need to branch out and explore other periods of time. However, it is my connection with the American South and the clothing of rural America that continues to be the driving force behind my designs.

One thought on “WWII era WASP beret

  1. I am in desperate need of a WWII WASP Beret for display in our gift shop.
    We are The Commemorative Air Force Aircraft museum, we are a 501c3 non profit organization.
    Although we have a full uniform on exhibit, I would like a recreated beret to be used as decoration.
    Please let me know if you can recreate one for me as shown in your web site.
