Product Information

Hat-making is an art which may be acquired by anyone possessing patience and ordinary ability. Originally published in the 1920s, this book is an excellent instructional guide to millinery, written by the Director of the Domestic Arts Department of the Minneapolis Y.W.C.A, a top designer, demonstrator and instructor in millinery.

To make one's own hats, using up old materials, stimulates originality and gives opportunity for expression. It is amazing to see how many new ideas are born when we start out to do something which we have thought quite impossible. It all helps to give added zest to life. Making one's own hats appeals to the constructive instinct of every woman aside from the matter of thrift, which should always be taken into consideration. Someone will say, "I would not wear any hat I might make." How often have we worn unbecoming hats, poor in workmanship, besides paying someone handsomely for the privilege. Let us try to form some standard by which to judge of the worth of a hat instead of the maker's name.
