Up for your consideration is another marvelous Dakota Prairie Treasures Spiral Bound Republicationâ„¢ of our original Woman's Institute Lesson Book on "Millinery for Mature Women" with detailed instructions and draft patterns! In my humble opinion there is no age limit for these lovely bonnets, hats and toques. :) And this item discusses the difference in fabric, color choices and set of the hat that distinguishes the two classes of hat styles apart. Enclosed in this DPT Republication is a fine variety of styles and variations of ladies' millinery which was originally published 1916! (Original is NOT for sale)
The contents goes into great detail regarding creating austere and dignified headdresses for woman of a certain age. Wonderfully detailed instruction and images on making the wire hat frames, selection of fabric and color, flower and feather adornments, sewing techniques, etc! There's even info on how to recycle ostrich feathers and artificial flowers. :)
Our new line of Spiral Bound Book Republicationsâ„¢ 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. We believe you'll love it too!
