Mourning Millinery

Hats worn when one is in mourning are nearly always small and made of

black crepe with a few folds of white crepe near the face. The covering

of crepe is always lined, preferably with sheet wadding to give the

soft appearance desired. The trimming is of milliner's folds or flat

flowers made of the crepe.[98-1] The mourning veils used may have a

simple wide hem sewed down by hand or an applied hem. The applied hem is

much the handsomer finish.
