We scanned and reformatted a scare original and are pleased to offer you this wonderful antique millinery reference for your reenactment or personal recreation sewing pleasures!

This item has score upon score of line drawings and photos regarding the manufacturing of the most deliciously feminine FLAPPER ERA HATS & chapeaux in its 243 pages!

It includes a rich selection of scaled millinery (draft) patterns for you to enlarge to full-sized patterns using graphed paper or other methods.

This item covers the history of the hat from ancient times through the 20's. This would be a great reference item for those interested in SCA, reenactment groups, students, fabric artists, Red Hat Society members and more! I hardly know where to begin!(Original is NOT for sale)

This is the perfect opportunity to purchase your own version of another wonderful craft instructional revealing our heritage from early America and European cultures!


An excerpt:

''In compiling the following book, the author has in her mind, not only the teaching of a handicraft, but the hope of presenting her subject in such a form as may stimulate thought, ingenuity, and originality.

Millinery suffers perhaps more than most subjects from its transitoriness, but with the foundation work carefully and fully described, it is believed that the serious student will be able to apply this knowledge to the new ideas which must continually occur. Should this hope be fulfilled the author has achieved her object of raising Millinery from a mere craft to an educational subject.''
