I had to do a little research to figure out what width size ribbon binding 7 ligne was, it is about .60 inches width, a little over 1/2" width, that width of binding is perfect for brim binding, of course that is my opinion on brim binding, I am not real fond of wider brim binding. I have a bit of trouble getting the binding the right length. When I put the binding on the brown hat, I cut the ribbon to the exact length and stitched it together, then had to shorten it to get the right tension on the binding.My 'sweet spot' for brim binding ribbon is 6 or 7 ligne. I have some 4 ligne from Art and it is vexing to work with. The 9 or 12 ligne is also more difficult to work with so I try really hard to steer my clients to the 6 or 7.
