Hat Frames Of Fabric
Much care, thought, and patience must be exercised in making the frame
of any hat. It is the foundation upon which we build, and if poorly made
no amount of work can cover it up later. A hat must be right every step
of the way. The frame is the first step, and so the most important.
The simplest hat to make is the straight brim sailor with a square
crown, covered with velvet. Such a model we will take up at first.
