Originally published in 1952!


Up for bid is another marvelous Dakota Prairie Treasures unabridged Spiral Bound Book Republication™, ''Hat Making Simplified by Irene Sutton,'' originally published in 1952!


This historic item contains several patterns, millinery instructions, diagrams, designs, and instructional fundamentals for creating a variety of millinery hat making ideas including those used in millinery and clothing embellishments. There are many design ideas and instructions included!

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!
