From millinery to dressmaking, this excellent digital collection from the University of Wisconsin Digital Collections group brings together a myriad of books from the early 20th century on the world of such matters, along with forays into costume design. Interestingly enough, the University of Wisconsin offered courses in these fields in the 1910s and 1920s. Visitors can start their exploration of these materials by browsing through a few of the titles, which include Florence Anslow's 1922 work "Practical Millinery" and Gene Allen Martin's "Make Your Own Hats" from 1921. In total, this collection contains 36 complete works, and visitors may be inspired by the site to create their own costumes, dresses, and so on.
