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.
