New Brims For Old Crowns

If the brim of a hat is past renewing, a new one may be made, or the

wire brim from an old hat may be used with a crown of velvet, or any

fabric or straw. The wire brim may be re-covered with georgette--an old,

half-worn waist will do nicely, using the back or sleeves, or any

portions that are not too badly worn. When a heavier crown is used, the

edge of a sheer brim should have a fold of material like the crown

sewed at the edge, or a row of straw when the crown is of straw braid.
