Wire for 1880s Hat

Postby smt22 » Tue Feb 24, 2009 5:14 pm

Hi Heather,

Could you please give me an estimate of how much millinery wire might be required to make the 1880s hat with the regular crown? I can't afford to buy more than I need! :roll:

Thanks a lot!

Since you usually have to purchase in it rolls, the smallest roll should work for you. It won't take more than 3 yards I think

you can also buy millinery wire by the metre from vena cava
