Tips for Lining and Finishing Your Ha
This class is suitable for intermediate and advanced level students who are familiar with covered buckram techniques.
Tools and Supplies that you will need:
Buckram ( approx 1 yard but 1 1/2 would be safer if it is 36 wide) I will be using Single Buckram, sometimes sold as Heavy Buckram. You could also use 20/20 blocking canvas.
(Note: I avoid the type with built-in adhesive, but if you like this sort, you certainly can work with it)
**optional: Cotton Crinoline (tarlatan) approx. one yard, or another preferred mulling layer
Millinery Wire (instructor prefers gauge 19, but 18 will also work) approx. 2 1/2 yards
paper and fabric scissors
18″ x 2″ clear ruler
flat surface to work on
millinery block or head form (styrofoam is ok)
push pins or T-pins
scotch tape in a weighted dispenser
grosgrain, or Petersham ribbon to finish the head fitting
lightweight interfacing (instructor prefers fusible tricot)
If you need one, a supply kit can be purchased below
