Synopsis

Only 70 years ago most women could make their own hats. They'd twist an old hat into a party-piece, or magic their old man's trilby into the talk of the town, but today we've mostly forgotten how to make hats ourselves. Unlike other hat-making books on the market, there'll be no expensive equipment or complicated skills to acquire. Inspired by vintage hats, Mary Jane will show you how to fashion your own at home. From an elegant packable sun-hat, to a 40s-style fascinator, there'll be clear instructions and couture tips to help you achieve fabulous results from scratch, as well as tips on how to update a preloved piece. Wonderful illustrations and fabulous photos complete a book that's both beautiful and brimful of ideas.
