to a tulle-covered wire shape (Diag. XXVIII.); 
(7) by working over rings in a fancy design 
(Diag. XXIX.); (8) by twisting over wires, and

(3) by forming figure eights (Diag. XXXI.); 
(4) by making flowers in chiffon and mounting 
them in wreaths, crescents, sprays, etc., and 
sewing same on to a shape previously covered 
with lace, or chiffon folded or cased; (5) by 
sewing on chiffon, gathered, rucked, or tucked 
on, one-half of the brim, on the sideband, and 
sewing chiffon similarly treated around lace 
motifs, and covering the other sections of shapes 
with the motifs; (6) by rucking or gathering 
strips, and forming them into overlapping cres- 
cents, placed widthway on the shape, and 
threading ribbon or silk or velvet through the 
crescents; (7) by gathering at each edge, and 
forming shells (Diag. XXXII.).
