Millinery: The Art of Hat-Making
A bespoke hat, designed with a particular event in mind, is something many people long for, but often feel is price prohibitive. In this fabulous new book, couture milliners, Lomax & Skinner, show that this need not be the case. With clear and comprehensive step-by-step-instructions and photography, Sarah Lomax and Rachel Skinner show readers how to make 12 very different hats for a variety of occasions, including a wool-felt trilby, a chic pillbox, a fascinator and a feathered headband. The materials and equipment required are fully detailed, along with all the necessary techniques, enabling the reader to adapt the designs if they wish, or to create their own unique hats. Full of inspirational and instructional photography, this beautifully designed book truly showcases this wonderful craft and provides all the know-how in order to achieve high-end, couture results at home.
