Covering Turbans

Turbans are becoming to many types and are particularly suitable for the

matron. Gay coverings are used on them often when they would be out of

place on a larger hat. However, any material may be used; braids, alone

or in combination with fabric. Velvets, georgette, satin, and taffeta

are used. A turban covered entirely with flowers sewed down flat makes a

charming hat: the lower edge invariably looks better if first bound with

a bias piece of velvet no matter what the covering may be--it seems to

give a softer look around the face. A round crown of buckram makes a

good turban frame if a bias strip of crinoline an inch wide is sewed to

the lower edge to give a little flare. A frame of this kind may be

draped with velvet, satin, georgette, or any pliable material, and when

skillfully done the effect is beautiful indeed.
