The revival in Swiss braid has given new milliners a love for the traditional techniques of another era but the challenge to design for the modern fashionista. Each design taught has a method to perfect for best results.
Start with a cocktail hat where you learn to wire and line after stiffening. Weaving wide brims are challenging but your tutor explains in detail how to taper the braid to weave perfectly flat. The lesson outlines a picture hat brim, boater hat with low crown and a Dior brim completed with a buckram crown. The texture and colours of the braid will add fresh dimension to your millinery collection.
