Product Information

Originally published in 1922, Modern Millinery contains complete instructions in the work of preparing, making and copying millinery, as actually practiced in the most advanced trade workrooms.

The book is planned for use as a school textbook. But it is also an adjunct to the progressive workroom, where it is invaluable as an aid to training the staff in the most advanced methods, and it is a friendly guide even to the practicing milliner, to whom a few hints on the efficiency and economy of modern methods may be worth many times the price of the book.

Please note this book is not suitable for beginners to learn the art without an instructor, even if it has given very clear instructions with detailed drawings. Practical Millinery Lessons: A Complete Course of 24 Lessons in the Art of Millinery would be a good choice for home study.
