Why Buy Just One? Receive a 50% s/h discount on all items in your order after the first purchase, providing all are paid for in a single payment as invoiced! o:p /O:P Up for your consideration is another marvelous Dakota Prairie Treasures Spiral Bound Republicationâ„ of our original Woman's Institute Lesson Book on Flapper Era "Practical Home Millinery," with more detailed instructions and guides for making womens', childrens' and infants' hats and bonnets! In my humble opinion there is no time limit for these lovely items. :) Originally published 1912! (Original is NOT for sale) The contents goes into great detail regarding creating austere and dignified headdresses for woman of the Gibson and pre- Titanic Eras. Many, many wonderfully detailed instruction images on hat and bonnet making from materials and tools used to covering your handmade wire and buckram hat frames with fabric, straw braids, etc! This Dakota Prairie Treasures Spiral Bound Book Republicationâ„ contains 108 pages (24 illustration plates) with instructions on pattern making and construction techniques for hats, bonnets, and veils from start to finish - from taking the three imperitive measurements to make perfect fitting custom made head gear to finishing your creative endeavours with the appropriate feathers, bows and floral trims. This is not a "retyped text" but cleaned and redigitized scans of our original antique book. Included are 41 chapters such as: Children's millinery, widows veils, confirmation and bridal veils, working with different materials, how to clean trim, how to curl feathers, silk flower making and much more! An Excerpt: " ...a methodical arrangement of the principles governing the Art of Millinery. There are many such principles that never change, whatever alterations of style, etc., fashion decrees, so the forthcoming information will, I hope, encourage even the unlikely worker to produce, with practice, the most artistic creations". "One more argument in favor of the subject of millinery, What satisfaction is greater than that of finding oneself able to copy an expensive model at one-third the cost of the original?" o:p /O:P 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! *** Producing the best CD Spiral Bound Book Republications for you since 1999! *** Our customers say: "As a seamstress I adore this. Rate service excellent. A" Lots of pretty and functional headgear frame ideas to prompt your millinery muse! Alteration options, suggestions and instructions included! Just in time for Summer and Fall Hats! Very Gibson Girls' and pre-Titanic grace and style! This item is a great resource for those who are Titanic and Flapper era historical reenactment enthusiasts, opera, stage and theatre costumers, students of historical clothing, fiber and textile arts, etc!
