Crown For Halo Brim

This may be very sheer, although a halo brim may be used on a braid or

satin crown if desired. A wire crown for a halo brim usually consists of

a mere collar of frame wire several inches high. This is sewed to the

headsize wire. The covering for the crown is usually made in the shape

of a circle about fourteen inches in diameter, with the same number of

thicknesses as the brim. Gather one-quarter of an inch from the edge,

adjust fullness and sew to the headsize wire. The height of the crown

depends upon the style of hair dressing. Place a band of the same

material as the crown, or a narrow ribbon, around the base of the crown

for trimming and to conceal the wires. A wired bow of the sheer material

may be used very effectively. (See chapter on Bows.)
