Fashion tips for using scraps of old material, and making two hats out of one.
Fashion item based on advice given by Anne Edwards, fashion editor of Woman magazine. Probably filmed at Pathe studios, London.
A lady sorts through scraps of material and cuts them into squares, she sews the squares onto a piece of net to make a patchwork waistcoat which she models. M/S's of patchwork gown. The lady then cuts the brim off her hat, she stitches long piece of net onto the back of the crown to make a new hat, then takes the brim, pleats and stitches it then adds some more netting. M/S as she models this hat, showing two serviceable hats can be made from one old one.
