Whether a beret or brimmed, straw, felt, or cloth, a pillbox or cone—hats can define a time and place, be it on the street or on stage. In this practical workbook, The author takes readers through the process of design and construction of hats, using specific exercises to create basic kinds of headwear that can easily be adapted to different historic periods. Learn about measuring and patterning, using tools, and achieving apparently contradictory goals—hats that are theatrically appropriate, but also strong, durable, and efficient to build.

The book incorporates these special features essential to hat making:

- a contemporary perspective of tools and skills
- clear instructions and safety notes for use in or out of the classroom
- progressive exercises that make it easy to explore and expand on techniques
- a focus on working with buckram, straw, and cloth-staples of the milliner's art
- high—quality photos for each project
