This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1847 edition. Excerpt: ... Dress Hats are frequently made on Paris foundation net. The rule for making and covering the fronts of bonnet-shapes in general, will here apply in each detail,--although the form of the crown, as well as the covering, will require some further explanation. Crowns suitable to Dress-hats usually incline to the form of a dome; and these, as far as relates to the frame, are made indifferently of leno or stiff muslin. A strip of either will answer the purpose, and must be cut three nails and a-half in depth, and five-eighths in length. One edge of the strip must be plaited up to the size of about a crown-piece, -- having previously joined the strip so as to form a circle. The plaited part will now require to have a flat piece inserted at the top,--and the lower part must be slightly sloped away at the back and front, so as to fit correctly on to the brim, which has been already made. You may now attach the crown to the front, and, cut out a large round of whatever material your hat may be composed. The centre of this round should now be placed immediately over the small flat piece introduced at the top part of the foundation, which will allow you to dispose of it into distant and regular folds, so as to fit the lower part of the foundation. It is not unusual for the crown of dress-hats to be arranged on one side; and, in such cases, you have merely to cut your strip of leno or stiff muslin somewhat deeper on one side than the other, and to slope it off gradually to the opposite side,--plaiting it up as before shown, and completing it by the small flat round, which we suggest should not exceed the size of a crownpiece. Dress hats should at all times be made as small as possible in the head,--provided, of course, the size does not interfere...
