I'm getting ready to make my hunny a fedora, but I want to make sure it is stiff enough. Has anyone made one with a specific interfacing or any ideas to keep it firm enough to actually sit and now flatten down.

Nothing worse than a hat that won't keep its shape!

Thanks so much!

I think if you use 2 layers of a fusible interfacing (medium weight) for the body and 3 for the brim, you should give your material enough body (unless you've chosen a stiffer fabric and then you may not need as much).

Here you go

what really works better than getting you felt soaking wet is to use a clothes steamer.  It give you control of what you are doing, and dries much faster.
