1 Review
In this book basic millinery is covered, from felts, through stitched hats and straws, to the bridal headdress. Shapes dealt with suit heads from infant to grandma. Instructions include trims and suitable interlinings for millinery fabrics. The author deals clearly with the elements of design - line, direction, shape, size, texture, value, colour and then the principles of harmony, contrast, gradiation, alteration, balance. In simple fashion she explains the uses of repetitions, radiation, unity, and dominance, in millinery design.
