"I am personally all in favour of the feminine sex remaining feminine; therefore, as a milliner, I hope I may be forgiven for claiming that no other article of apparel stamps the feminine hall-mark on its wearer more surely than does her hat, particularly if it is one that has just that something that the others have not--a pleasing line at the head, a well moulded upsweep brim, a nicely placed feather or an attractive bow...
If you have never tackled the job of making a hat, take my advice, try it now. Not only will you save expense; you will, if you have any idea of needlework, colour and line at all, gain immense satisfaction from what can become a lucrative, fascinating hobby and you will be better dressed into the bargain..."
