To Cover A Mushroom-shaped Brim

If not very drooping, it may be covered without making a seam in the

material. To do this, begin by placing the corner of the fabric on top

at the front of the brim. Pin the front, back, and each side, always

pulling with the thread of the material, and pin closely at edge, with

pins at right angles to the brim. If covered with georgette, satin or

silk, which is pliable, the fullness may all be worked out without a

seam. Baste close to headsize wire and finish edge by following same

method as used in finishing sailor brim. Also follow same method with

facing. If the material used is not pliable, or if the brim is too

drooping to admit of stretching the material smoothly, a seam must be

made at the back. The method would be the same as used in covering the

rolled brim.
