This item is a great resource for those who are Flapper and Depression era historical reenactment enthusiasts, opera, stage and theatre costumers, students of historical millinery, clothing, fiber and textile arts, etc! An excerpt: "Millinery - who disputes the fact? - is an art. Like the other arts, it has flowered out of civilization. For centuries, Women has desired that her head-covering - be it cap, bonnet or hat - should in itself be a thing of beauty. A thing which shall at once express and flatter the wearer and be, gaily, in tune with her own time... ...The ABC of Millinery is intended for the laywoman--for the woman who loves hats but who up to now, where the creation of hats is concerned, has considered herself an outsider. This is the book for the reader whose fingers have itched to attempt millinery, but whose good sense has warned her against the blunders she can but make if she is not helped. A book for the reader who, having been offered inferior hats in shops, can but have thought: "I'm sure I could do better that that , if only, if only, I knew how...." A book for the reader with time and taste." The antique and vintage ribbons, threads, fabrics, blocks, tools, etc., can be found on online quite readily. You just have to hunt a little bit! :) Or, of course, you can utilize contemporary tools and materials found at a near by fabric, craft or hobby storeâ Our customer say: Wonderful book!
