In her hat-making classes, Waring used miniature hats to illustrate sewing techniques. The miniature hats attracted such interest that she began to develop small-hat designs and to teach miniature hat-making for dolls, teddy bears, or just for display on a hat form. This book--the first this reviewer has seen on the subject--includes profusely illustrated, step-by-step instructions for 18 different hat styles, including top hats, baseball caps, berets, cloches, chef's hats, boaters, and elaborate Easter Parade creations. Depending on the types of fabric and adornments used, an astonishing variety of hats can result from the same pattern. Instructions for making a cardboard hat stand for displaying the finished hats makes miniature hat making an excellent pastime even for those who do not sew doll clothes. Recommended for public libraries.
