Pattern For Slanting Side Crown

Cut a piece of manila paper one-fourth inch wider than crown height and

one-half inch longer than headsize wire measure. Slash across this paper

in four equally distant places, within one-fourth inch of edge of

bottom, then lap slashes at top a little more than one-fourth inch, or

about enough to take out about one and one-half inches. Pin slashes. Lap

ends of paper one-fourth inch and pin together. Place this pattern on

brim with joining at back and pin to upturned slashes on brim. Try on to

see if any alterations are necessary. It can be decided at this point

and changes made should the crown be too sloping or too straight. An

amateur should try on a frame often in order to be assured of lines and

curves that are becoming. Remove pattern from brim and cut off from top

and bottom any irregularities on the edge.
