Hats and How to Make Them -- Designing Patterns and Constructing Hats Using 1920s Millinery Techniques

Hats and How to Make Them -- Designing Patterns and Constructing Hats Using 1920s Millinery Techniques

Originally published in 1925, this rare book will teach you millinery pattern making and construction techniques used in the 1920s including how to make paper patterns; equipment needed/used to make hats; types of fabrics and furs that work best with hat construction; making molded frames; making wire frames; covering crowns; covering hat with braids; millinery stitches used; edge and bind finishings; handmade trims; decorative stitches; feathers; hat linings; renovating/restoring hats; hat history. PATTERN MAKING: Using newspaper, tissue or wrapping paper, you'll learn how to create paper hat patterns using hats or patterns you already have. Measuring the brim, cutting the brim, cutting the headsize and copying give you the start of your hat. For designing a brim, the book provides instructions to make an even, uneven, slightly drooping, slightly upturned or irregularly shaped brim based on the look you want to create. Crown pattern design is also discussed including how to measure for a crown, cutting a straight side band, cutting a curved side band, and joining all of the pieces together. After your pattern is made, the book details attaching the paper, cutting the brim, making the brim, sewing the band to headsize, and creating a "paper hat" before constructing your hat of fabric. HAT MAKING: Instructions are provided to make pieces for numerous types of 1920s hats which then can be attached to create the look you desire including a soft hat of bias folds, bias fold hat with running stitch used as decoration and another decorated with narrow hemp braid and running stitches, crown made of bias folds, hats made from strips of ribbon with a cord edge, crown made with wire cord, three ribbon hats, shirred hat made of silk, stitched silk hat, tucked brim hat, two halo brimmed hats, child's stitched hat and tam-o-shanter hat. 125 illustrations accompany the instructions to provide visuals for hat construction. Sample book images are shown at the top of this page.

Gallenga kimono-style coat, ca.1920-23

Gallenga kimono-style coat, ca.1920-23

A fine & important, Maria Monaci Gallenga textile! Gallenga has brought to us, this rare and important, kimono-style evening coat, with her signature stenciling/printing design throughout the piece. Her designs are often compared to those of Fortuny, as they both produced hand-stenciled designs, which were inspired by the medieval past. She is best known for her Oriental and Gothic designs, stenciled in gold and silver.

This fine evening coat, is a true representation of Orientalism, which was apparent in fashion, throughout the late Edwardian era, until the 1930's, and prior to the early 20th century, Oriental styles were only seen in textiles and paintings. Paul Poiret, during his reign as the master of haute-couture, thrilled his wearers with pieces such as this, deeply inspired by the exotic, far east.

Gallenga has used a rich, forest green silk velvet, which displays the stenciling very well, even as the stenciling becomes less dense. The dramatic shade of green velvet, fuels the distinct, "rainforest" themed stenciling/printing

The kimono-styling, is enhanced by the loose-fitting sleeves, high neckline, and open side seams- which deeply resemble a kimono. The coat is accented by black satin to the front where it fastens, and along the edges of the slits to the sleeves, and open side seams. The black satin, paired with the rich green, dramatizes it's brilliance! The black satin is also accented with 3-dimensional, gold metallic braid trim. There is also additonal deep forest green velvet trim along the edge of the bottom of the coat and sleeves

Maria's subtle "rainforest" stenciling, is the true art of this piece- she has used up to nine tones of gold and silver to achieve the desired ombre shading. The fine stenciling, does not tarnish, nor fade- unlike other similar pieces of the period, thanks to Maria's husband (whom was a professor at the University of Rome), he created a special formula to prevent such.

The rich, subtle-pattern stenciling and printing comprises of a dense scene of lush trees, leaves, and bushes in shades of silver and golds, and the stenciling has very fine specks of glistening silver- which sparkle wonderously! The coat is fully lined in black satin, and fastens with a series of elaborate, pierced gilt-metal buttons to the front, and also has a weighted hem- so that it will always hang perfectly.

Pieces of Gallenga are unsigned, but in very few instances are her textiles signed, and even then, the signatures hardly remain. The true collector/appreciator of Gallenga, will be able to determine a piece's authenticity through the distinct method of stenciling/printing. This piece comes with excellent provenance, as proof of its authenticity- it was purchased at a major London auction (whom specializes in antique textiles and vintage couture) and will come with information from the auction stating it is of Gallenga. The paragraph for the lot read "An evening coat of Maria Gallenga green velvet, early 1920's, printed overall in shimmering gold and silver trees, edged in dark green velvet, black satin and gold braid, bust 38in."

It is a very important piece of Orientalism, and from one of the early 20th century's master designers. The coat would make a lovely display on a kimono displaying rail- so that the fine art of the textile could be admired, or used as a decorative piece, and of course worn over your Fortuny!

Measurements: the straight, loose-fitting style should be taken into consideration, Bust 38", Waist 36", Hips 40". The length is 49".

The condition is Very Good- there are a few breaks to the velvet, which are just a fine, narrow, seperation, and some pricks to the velvet- though very clean, and otherwise excellent! Please note that any variation to the velvet color, is due to the lighting, and any "specks" are the glistens of the stenciling.

1920s Art Deco Cloche Hat in Vibrant Colors

1920s Art Deco Cloche Hat in Vibrant Colors

This vintage style cloche hat has a tailored, yet classic 1920's art deco style. The fabric is a nape upholstery in a hop sack type weave with a scrolling abstract design in a velor velvet. A very stunning fabric to behold. The embroidered pattern is in vibrant colors of turquoise and olive green placed onto a pale taupe backdrop. I have used a luminous turquoise taffeta for the brim and band, made several accent flowers from a celery chiffon and added some scruching in the turquoise and a olive taffeta. The hat is lined in a charmuese olive satin.
