5.0 out of 5 stars From a hatmaker and vintage lover, April 29, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Was recommended this book by someone who sells vintage hats as a good reference. I found it brilliant and fascinating. So much fashion literature completely ignores hats, which were essential wear for women and men for many hundreds of years. this book does a great job of explaining, not only the hats, but the fashion context of the time and also the historical context of each decade. Well set out and easy to read. Highly recommended for anyone interested in fashion history.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hatmaker's Essential, March 6, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Since telling others I purchased this book, I have discovered it to be somewhat of a Milliner's "Bible" and is greatly in demand. This is with good reason as it is a highly comprehensive text book for the craft of millinery - with a particular emphasis on hat-making for costume, theatre and film. The book is set out intelligently and the beautiful period drawings are a delight. All facets of millinery are in here - from design, materials, techniques and construction of a variety of hats. Line drawings of construction and techniques are supported by b/w photographs and clear written instructions. Highly recommended for beginners and more experienced milliners.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Hat Book, March 6, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This book is a winner for anyone starting out in Millinery. It is well structured and laid out as lesson plans. There is a comprehensive section on types of headwear, millinery fabrics and materials which is followed by instructions for the design and construction of a range of basic hat styles. The typed format and slightly amateur line drawings are a little off-putting at first, but the content is excellent and the exercises are clear, well written and easy to follow. The book has enough well-rounded information to provide a solid introduction. There are even samples of different millinery materials! Highly recommended!
