MILLINERY 
    The chief points to be noted when making a 
 crepe veil are:- 
      I. Neither veil nor hem must be stretched 
 in the manipulation. 
     II. The tacking or basting must be used 
  unsparingly. 
    III. The turnings must be even and narrow. 
    IV. The slip-stitching should be done with 
 crepe cotton or silk thread. 
     V. When a waterfall veil is desired the hem 
 of the veil should be equal in width at all four 
 sides, not have one a quarter yard deep, as the 
 long straight veil. 
   Embroidered Linen, or Piece Lace Hats.- 
 Foundations formed of stiff net, hard book muslin 
 and wire are generally used. 
   The embroidery, etc., is cut to shape in the 
 same way as crepe, but only one side of the 
 brim of shape is covered with the material. In 
 a flat shape this is the top side, in a rolled back 
 the upstanding. The reverse side is then lined 
 with chiffon, etc., at the milliner's discretion. 
 The edge of material at brim edge is turned in 
 and oversewn to shape, then neatened in various 
 ways with binds or fullings. The tip sewn on as 
 when making a velvet hat, the sideband simply 
 turned in and placed in position, then sewn at 
join only.
