Hats and How to Make Them


By Virginia C. Patty

Originally Published in 1925


If you are the first to bid, using the buy-it-now option, you win! Don't wait, bid now!


Up for bid is a marvelous UNABRIDGED CD-ROM REPUBLICATION of the original ''Hats and How to Make Them'' with NO RESERVE!'' We scanned and reformatted a scare original and are pleased to offer you this wonderful antique millinery reference for your reenactment, boutique sales or personal recreation sewing pleasures!

This HISTORIC cd republication has 125 line drawings and photos regarding the manufacturing of the most deliciously feminine FLAPPER ERA HATS & chapeaux in its 216 pages! It includes instructions for all the necessary steps and needle working techniques to make lovely hats for all seasons! It includes a rich HISTORICAL section on making your own patterns using graphed paper and/or other methods.

This would be a great reference item for those interested in SCA, reinactment groups, students, fabric artists, Red Hat Society members and more! 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!


An excerpt:

''The material presented here on the choice and the making of hats has been accumulated during many years of teaching and shop practice. All methods given are those which have proved successful. Throughout the book emphasis is placed upon the need for studying the mode and adapting it to the individual. Repeated suggestions are made for modification of the hats and trimmings herein described.''
