1 cup boiling water, 1/2 cup sugar. Boil and cool. Add: 1 tbsp. gelatine and thin down to thickness needed.

To Stiffen Crinoline

Dissolve 1 package gelatin in 1 cup water. Wash and rinse crinoline then soak and squeeze crinoline in gelatin mixture. Remove and drain without rinsing. This will stay stiff longer than starch.
