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 appempt 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 inferiour 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.
