This HISTORIC item contains instructions, diagrams, designs & instructional fundamentals for creating a variety of classic millinery hat styles.

There are many unique patterns, instructions & diagrams for feminine,to practical hats! (Original is NOT for sale)

Our new line of Spiral Bound Book Republications™ oh-so-conveniently lie flat while in use!

This is a unbelievably nice touch if you have every tried to read a pattern's instructions while your hands are full of your in progress project. As an avid needleworker myself my personal experience prompted my choice of spiral binding for it's ease-of-use alone. I bet you'll love it too!

This item is a great resource for those who are Flapper and Depression era historical reenactment enthusiasts, opera, stage and theatre costumers, students of historical millinery, clothing, fiber and textile arts, etc!

An excerpt:

''WHY WEAR A HAT

Why wear a hat - For the best reason in the world! For glamour - for flattery - to attract attention - and to add the finishing touch to the costume as frosting lifts a plain cake to glorious heights!

Why wear a Hat - For the second best reason in the world! To keep your ears warm - to keep your hair-do in place - to protect your unbowed head from the elements - and to add the kind of glamour that inspires admiring whistles!

Besides being an important accessory before and after the fact - how often do you suppose a new hat has been bought as a blues-chaser

Miracles can be wrought out of thin air! With a new and becoming hat the head is held higher - there's a lilt in the step - and a sparkle in the eye. Nothing is impossible! The admiring world lies at your feed - just waiting to be conquered!''
