This PDF EBook is from a very rare Early 1960s Millinery Book with Twelve High Fashion Hat Patterns to Make and Create. This book is from My Private Collection that Has Been Scanned and Professionally Restored to its Original Splendor in PDF Format, Ready to Be Printed Out or Read Directly From Your Computer Screen


Originally published in the early 1960s by a renowned custom milliner, fashion commentator and teacher, Artie Wiggins, her unique millinery creations have appeared in fashion shows in the states and in Europe.

From her vast experience in fashion, hat making and teaching, Ms. Wiggins has devised a fun and easy lesson plan for creating twelve gorgeous millinery masterpieces! Including clear step by step instructions, with many illustrations, detail measurements, folds, sewing guides and trim placement. Fabric suggestions, yardage, trim quantity, supply list - everything you need to start making your own special easy-to-make hats with vintage flair and panache today.

As a bonus, these hats may be made by recovering vintage hats in need of repair and/or a color/fabric upgrade.
