Scope and content

Millinery design portfolio in brown paper created by Doris Schnelder with handwritten annotations regarding felt shapes, felt finishes, millinery principles, ribbons, wires, straws, straw fibres, straw hat seams, and places of origin of straws; magazine clippings with different styles of hats and headcovers; and mounted fabric samples showing millinery materials, types of braids and bows, and sample stitches.
