MILLINERY 
edge of straw is wired in a length, the first 
row is then pinned to the shape at its edge, the 
succeeding rows to the preceding one until the 
brim is entire. This is then carefully removed 
and sewn firmly, the outer edge wired, as 
Diag. IV., and refitted to the shape in order 
that any errors in form may be remedied. The 
crown is begun at its base, the headline, the 
first row pinned as the brim to the shape, the 
second to the first, and so on until the centre 
of top is reached, when the end is twisted into 
the crown. 
                   CAPS 
  Caps.- Caps may be briefly summarised 
under four heads. 
    I. The Matron's, under which heading all 
the dainty confections, bow arrangements of 
ribbon and lace, twisted bandeau, and bandeaux 
are placed. 
   II. Old Ladies' caps, which are so nearly, like 
their bonnets, obsolete. 
  III. Confirmation caps. 
  IV. Servants' caps. 
  In all cases but that of the bandeau 
(Diag. XLI.) the shape consists of two thick- 
nesses of net, one ½ in. larger all round than the 
other, which is cut to size and form       of 
pattern.
