Bows Of Maline

Maline is one of the most beautiful materials used in millinery and it

lends itself to many uses. Hat frames are covered with maline; it is

used to cover wings to keep feathers in place; to cover faded or

worn-out flowers; for shirred brims and crowns; for pleatings; for folds

on edges of brims to give a soft look; and for bows.

A bow of maline requires wiring with a very small tie wire or lace wire.

The wire may be caught in a fold at the edge of the loops, or the loops

may be made double with the wire caught inside.
