The Millinery Starter Kit is ideal for the individual who wants to explore the technical aspects of making a hat from "scratch" by creating a buckram frame. Everything you need to make the hat is included in the kit except for the following items:
1. Millinery glue
2. 18" ruler
3. Scissors for fabric, paper and handwork
4. Fashion fabric and lining for the hat
Complete instructions are included in the kit that guide you through the process of making a pillbox hat. The process starts with the pattern and continues through cutting the buckram for the hat frame, applying the millinery wire and batting, cutting and sewing the fabric to the buckram frame and finally, cutting and applying the lining to the inside of the hat. The millinery techniques you learn with this project provide a solid foundation for future millinery projects.
