I am on a serious new-supply fast while I take some inventory of my craft/fabric stash. I'd like to do some millinery, but realized I have no buckram. I DO however, have a TON of really light weight crinoline. I bought it when I was doing some ribbon flower work, and would use the crinoline as a backing to mount groups of flowers on.

Has anyone tried fusing/quilting with rows of stitching/gluing/general layering of this type of material for hat making successfully?

For the sake of being completely clear - the crinoline I have is like a super light-weight buckram, it has a pretty open weave and seems to have been stiffened with some sort of starch/paste. It's not rigid like buckram, but it's definitely stiff. It is not tulle, and it's definitely woven.
