To Sew Crown On Brim

The simplest way to proceed is to sew the crown on the brim before

adjusting the side crown covering. Pin back, front, and each side of

crown to brim, placing seams at back. Sew through upturned flaps of brim

and crown one-fourth inch from bottom wire. Stretch the velvet strip for

side crown on the crown, placing seam at back, unless trimming has been

planned which will cover the seam better if it is placed at some other

point. Turn top and bottom edges under to fit the side crown, and press

bottom fold down close to brim. If this band has been fitted tight

enough, it will not be found necessary to sew it.
