Considering the features of the beret’s fabric, such as density, texture and elasticity, the allowance that should be added to the required smaller diameter of the beret, is determined.
Important: if the fabric has stretching feature, 1-2 (cm) should be deducted from the determined diameter. If the beret is supposed to have the lining and the main used fabric is dense, then 0.5-1 (cm) should be added to the diameter.
In the classic version of berets the diameter of the upper part equals the head semi-circumference, and in the bulky version of berets it’s 3-7 (cm) bigger than usual.
The particular features for choosing a beret:
1. The model of the beret, if:
- it’s until ears, then the depth of the beret equals 1/3 part of the head circumference;
- it covers the half of the ear, 1-1.5 (cm) allowance is added to the beret’s depth;
- it’s until the earlobe, 2-3 (cm) allowance is added to the beret’s depth.
2. Face shape.
3. Seasonality and fabric.
