Item details

Useful and practical, millinery has always been a desireable skill.
This 20 page vintage booklet, "The Hatmaker No.6" is now available in a high resolution PDF.

This edition focuses on Autumn and Winter Patterns, from 1947-1948.
Clear and concise instructions show how to make the basic 'blocks', including how to use a saucepan as a base.

Different looks can be achieved by adding treatments, ribbons, netting etc - all shown in this very informative booklet for the home milliner.

For the more adventurous type, there are pages of the latest fashions from overseas models and actresses, with brief descriptions of how they could be achieved at home.

This listing is for the above PDF pattern, available by Instant Download. I can also email it to you instead if requested.
