I recently made 2 WWII Era WASP hats for the Arizona Commemorative Airforce Air Base Museum in Mesa, Arizona. The beret is based upon a pattern I developed a few years ago and is made of wool. The cap is based upon images I was able to locate from period photographs and one other museum display photo. The cap is made of blue denim cotton.
The hats were commissioned for display in the museum’s gift shop.
