To Sew Velvet Edge To Brim

This should be done with a close overcasting stitch on the under side,

being careful not to prick through to the right side of the velvet. It

is sometimes advisable in preparing the frame to stitch the buckram in

from the edge about one-fourth inch with the sewing machine, using a

long stitch. This stitching may then be used to put the needle through

when sewing the velvet down. If the velvet seems thick and heavy-looking

on under side after sewing, it may be pressed down with a hot iron. If

done quickly and lightly, it will not show on the right side.
