in all weathers, hold-its shape and 'coloring, and not weight down
the head, it is. best to serve simplicity. This is especially true in the
case of the school girl for whom the slightly tilting, semi-tailor shape
is one of the easiest and prettiest to wear.
The man milliner who fashioned the model here pictured, re
sorted to the most unexpected place- for his. idea in materials. He
took his pattern1 from the couch in the Jiving room! Yes, this hat;
is really made from ordinary velour, the same kind which may cover
your own sofa. .But it's strong and useful and soft-looking.
The brim is broad without being' extreme, and the crown is the
high, rounding type wtfich suits most girls. It is edged with ,a bias
.band of broadened velour in black' and white. The tips of the'
velour-covered wings are trimmed with the same. A double cross-1
way band of twisted b'cai'd, with two rows of white clqfhbuttonSj.
give the finishing touches. " , '
