This project is important for two reasons. First, it shows the student how to"block" the crowns of hats (useful for buckram as well as felt) which isnecessary for making any round crowned type hat. Second, it shows the student how to makea felt hat without using difficult to-find hatter's felt. Since many theaters cannotafford the time or money to acquire hatter's felt, this is a useful skill for the costumepropstechnician. Standard feltis available in a great variety of colors atmost fabric stores and is fairly inexpensive.

What to do.?? you can use either and old blanket from a thrift shop or firm quilt batting. Take your forms measurements. Decide how much larger you need it to be. Maybe the waist and hip measurements are correct but you need the bust to be larger. Cut your blanket or batting into strips aprox. 6 inches wide. Now starting above the bust., start wrapping . You want more wraps over the bust. the wrap should taper above the bust and as you go toward the waist. Measure to see if you have achieved the increase you need . Remember a little bigger is better than smaller. Once you are happy with the size cover the batting with either muslin or a layer of cotton knit.
