Another fantastic post to share from Blanka of Minor Swing of O'Sullivan's Girl! Not only does it contain some lovely 1940s hat inspiration pictures, but it also has instructions on making your own ever popular pillbox hat for the handy dandy vintage lady. I am absolutely filing this in the “Must Do This” list.

1942 (23th of March) LIFE issue shows hat types which could be easily (more or less) made at home. ….there's also a detailed manual telling you how you can make the gorgeous pillbox no. 12. Pillbox hats were very popular in 1940s and are significant for this era.
