Hat Frames Of Fabric

Much care, thought, and patience must be exercised in making the frame

of any hat. It is the foundation upon which we build, and if poorly made

no amount of work can cover it up later. A hat must be right every step

of the way. The frame is the first step, and so the most important.

The simplest hat to make is the straight brim sailor with a square

crown, covered with velvet. Such a model we will take up at first.
