This is the perfect opportunity to purchase your own version of another historic arts & crafts guide revealing our heritage. An excerpt: The facing of a hat is the covering of the under brim. It is used as a finish or for the purpose of framing the face of the wearer in a particular color or kind of material. Occasionally , it is employed to cover up some defect in the material or construction of a hat. The facing need not necessarily cover the entire under brim, but may take the form of bands of various widths. On bonnets, or on hats having upturned brims, the facing is the covering of the outside surface of the brim. The materials commonly used include silk, satin, lace, ribbon, braid, chiffon, maline, crepe, velvet, plush, and fur, though there are many other materials that may be used. These can be attached to under brims in a great variety of ways, producing different desired effects. Contents:
