Summary "A bespoke or custom-made 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 material and equipment that are 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, Couture Millinery truly showcases this wonderful craft and provides all the know-how in order to achieve high-end, couture results at home."-- Provided by publisher.
