This buckram can vary slightly in width from 28" to 29". It is a more open weave made with thicker treads than the tight weave buckram. Consider blocking the two together to get the double buckram effect, or try our new Fosshape product. We no longer stock "double buckram" as it is no longer being made.

We have professional Ballet Companies order this for tutu panties. They use a double layer. It seemed flimsy to me but I saw the end result and was amazed.

Others have used this like Bobbinet, as the interior for evening wear bodices (think vintage 1950) as a super light weight lining that holds bones in place.
   
 
The products on this page can be used for things other than hat making.
Millinery wire (also known as hat wire) can be a bit difficult to work with as it's quite soft, but this also means it can be shaped - unlike spring steel. You can use beading wire or even strong thread to connect intersections of the wire and secure the joins with jewel glue that dries clear. Millinery wire is used to create the shape for straw bonnets.
Nylon veiling
is drapes beautifully and is not at all puffy like tulle. It to can be used for many other things that veils; tutu panties are made from this using two layers, it's also used for net dress layers in lingerie. If you've never worked with it - buy just a meter, it's light weight, relatively inexpensive and it's 300cm wide! That's 118 inches.
