Royally Simple and Simply Royal!
I saw a picture of Kate Middleton and liked her beret. It's really easy to make so I thought I share it with all of you. The beret I made isn't identical to hers but I think it's close. I know it's a little hot for berets but if you use a light weight fabric, maybe you can pull it off.

I look forward to seeing all of your awesome versions!
