Vl K Many women made their own hats with base forms bought at the fabric or millinery supply store. They covered them with lace, ribbon or fabric, added purchased or homemade ornaments, etc. They also remodeled them season to season for thrift, adding new trimmings.

Paula Leslie I love her gown, not the hat. I refurbish hats. At church they call me the hat lady.
