Both Sides Of Brim Covered With Braid

Allow the first rows to project slightly beyond the edge of the brim

both on the top and the bottom. These edges may be brought together

with a small slanting stitch, or if preferred the edge may be first

bound with a bias piece of satin, or with a row of braid or gay-colored

material. If the edge of the brim is bound, the edges of the first rows

of braid at the top and bottom would not meet. The bound edge thus

showing gives the effect of a cord.
