These images come from the July, 1930 issue of Fashion Service Magazine.
These hats just make me tingle all over. Wouldn't it be amazing if we could bring these back in style again?

Usually if the magazine didn't include a diagram and instructions for making the featured designs, they recommended which pattern models (McCall's, Pictorial, etc.) one could buy to sew the desired look.
This issue, however, was advertising patterns produced by the Woman's Institute, for example, the beautiful model below (bottom right), #6D-7, could be made by ordering "W. Institute 2594" for 15 cents.
Reading about the patterns advertised surprised me because I've never seen a pattern directly released by the Woman's Institute before, and my Google and Pattern Wiki searches didn't show any either.
Have you ever seen one?
