In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to starch a sheer 1920s cloche hat, or any other sheer summer sun hat. 😉
- a sheer sun hat
- starch solution
Make the starch solution according to my instruction about how to starch a petticoat. Wet the fabric hat, and put it in the starch solution.
Wring out the excess starch.
Let the hat dry over some bowls. I’ve stacked three glass bowls one upon another to create a head shape. 😉
When the hat is dry, it’s as stiff as paper. If the brim is still crumpled, spray it with water, …
… and iron the brim.
