Hat Tricks

Almost every woman has a few old hats lying around that she can't bear to part with and wishes she knew how to utilize them in a new way.  Miss Gene Marshall and Miss Madra Lord, stars of the miniature silver screen, have a few tricks up their sleeve and demonstrate how to update that favorite old hat.

"Symphony in G" Gene Marshall
Miss Marshall refreshes her red and black checked tilt hat from Ashton Drake's "Little Black Dress" ensemble with miniature millinery fruit and a feather tucked into the brim.  Top from "A Lady Knows", necklace from "Lunch at the Green Parrot".

"Fashion Plot" Gene Marshall

A chic turban can easily be made from a piece of fabric.  In this case, the tartan beret from a 14" Betsy McCall by Robert Tonner is folded, tucked and twisted into this delightful topper. Shirt from Tonner's Brenda Starr Collection, skirt from "Fashion Plot", vest from "Little Black Dress", and cigarette holder from Integrity.  Director's Chair is from Ashton Drake.

"Like A Fox" Madra Lord
Miss Lord takes her cue from the colors of Autumn for this fabulous Forties tilt hat.  The base of the hat is from Nouveau Hats by Sharon.  The original Victorian style trim has been replaced with vintage feathers and a miniature millinery flower bud.  "Reporter In Red" suit and fur are from Tonner's Brenda Starr Collection.
