Item showing how to make new women's clothes and hats out of men's old ones.
Make and mend hats.
Probably filmed at Pathe studios, London.
Some utility fashion ideas from Anne Edwards the fashion editor of Woman magazine. M/S as a woman cuts the brim off her husband's trilby hat, she puts the crown on to a block and irons pleats into it. She attaches the brim and cuts off part of the crown to make it shallower, she adds a couple of feathers and models her new sporting hat. M/S of a woman modelling a town hat she has fashioned from an old top hat. M/S of old shirt which is now neat blouse. M/S of new suit made from husband's old one, and pinafore dress made from man's trousers.
Note: for search purposes 'make do and mend'.
