Spiral Bound Book Republication
By Jane Loewen
Originally Published in 1925!
If you are the first to bid on this auction, using the buy-it-now option, YOU WIN! There's no chance of being outbid! DON'T WAIT!
Up for bid is another marvelous Dakota Prairie Treasures Spiral Bound Book Republication of the original ''Millinery'' by Jane Lowen, originally published in 1925, 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 recreation sewing pleasures!
This Spiral Bound Book Republication has scores and scores of line drawings and numerous photos of the most deliciously feminine chapeaux in its 223 pages! It includes general instructions for making the many hats displayed in the listing collage using a variety of needle working techniques. I hardly know where to begin! (Original is NOT for sale)
Unlike other book reproduction products all Dakota Prairie Treasures Spiral Bound Book Republications lie flat for ease of use & reading! A great advantage when you are working & can't afford to loose that page especially when your work space is a bit too crowded! We all know what those situations are like. When you feel you need 3 or 4 hands to get the work done! So why not provide yourself with the best for less Furthermore, these can be placed with only one page up providing more open work space for you to work on your newest creation! :)
This is certainly a huge source of historically valuable 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!
This item would be great for millinery students, recreationists, SCA and Red Hat Society members!
