Who's Who in Holiday Hats

On these two pages, we present McCall's collection of marvelous make-believe millinery, thirty party hats designed to transform any holiday get-together—the third-grade room party or the New Year's Eve dance—into a festive Masked Ball. All these VIP hats are based on three simple geometric shapes that you cut from cardboard, double thicknesses of heavy foil, or think cotton felt; trim with feathers, bows, tassels, or any colorful odds and ends that happen to strike your fancy. They make memorable party favors and will probably see service on other let's-pretend occasions throughout the year. Instructions for making all of these hats are on page 38.
