Home Sewing Tips from the 1920s - Transparent Flowers to Trim Frocks and Hats

In this easy-peasy tip from Ruth Wyeth Spears, she describes how to make sheer floral accents for hats and frocks. All it takes is fine wire, ribbon, and tulle or maline fabric in your choice of color (all of which can be purchased online or at your local fabric store, such as Hancock's or Joanne's). Perfect for your summer or formal frocks of sheer fabric, and of course for any fine summer hat.

Be sure to click on the image to enlarge it for easier reading. And I simply have to make some of these. This is a low effort-project that will produce such satisfactory and lovely results.
