I hope I'm posting this in the right place, it is not exactly clothing but I wasn't sure if the general sewing area would be appropriate...

I am making a friend of mine a bridal hat with a small veil & a hat for her maid of honor. They're vintage style teardrop hats, which I am new to. I have made tons of fascinators & accessories, just never hats. So I ordered a couple mini teardrop buckram frames and I'm going fabric shopping tomorrow for the rest of the supplies but I cannot find a hat tutorial that answers my question anywhere on the net.

I have seen a lot of people put a felt or soft fleece as a lining on the hat before their fabric but I'm wondering if this is necessary? I plan to use satin or perhaps a silk dupioni to cover the hat and then a thin trim for the edges. I don't want the buckram texture to show through but also don't want to make it too bulky.

I'm also wondering if I need to sew everything down to the buckram frame or if I can use fabric glue? I saw one tutorial use hot glue with vinyl but I'm thinking that would burn the satin/silk.

Thank you so much in advance for any help. If you know of a good tutorial or have any tips for this project it would be much appreciated!!

It would probably be best to just sew the edges of the fabric to the edges of the buckram frame, and then bind it with bias tape around the edge to cover the stitching.
