CD Republication

Originally Published in 1922!

Up for bid is a marvelous CD republication of the original ''Millinery by Charlotte Rankin Aiken'' with NO RESERVE!'' 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 cd reproduction has 111 pages regarding the manufacturing of the most deliciously feminine FLAPPER ERA HATS & CHAPEAUX! It includes instructions for all the necessary steps and needle working techniques to make lovely fashionable hats. I hardly know where to begin! (Original is NOT for sale)

This is certainly a fine source of historically valuable techniques and inspiration for the creative millinery and fabric artists out there who recreate the hats and headdresses from the early 1900's. This is the perfect opportunity to purchase your own version of another wonderful craft instructional revealing our heritage from early America and European cultures!
