1 Doz. No. 10 Wire
Cut green crepe into a fine fringe across the grain of the crepe and sew six or eight thicknesses to the foundation, allowing it to hang straight down from the neck to the bottom of the skirt. It will be prettier if the muslin foundation is green, so that any motion of the fringe will not show a white foundation.
Cut about thirty petals of white crepe paper. Wire each through the center and sew around the neck. Finish the neck with a double ruffle made of two or more thicknesses of narrow yellow festoons. A spray of leaves and flowers trims the waist. The close fitting cap represents the daisy center. The foundation for the cap is made as described in the making crepe paper hats page. It is entirely covered with tightly crushed yellow crepe.
