Welcome to the Fabric, Lace & Trims Department.
For dressmakers, renovaters, collectors and those with a creative heart!
I so wish I currently had an 1830's dress to show this double pelerine to it's full advantage.
I have another similar one to sell today, so do take a look at both.
This one is more fragile, but but far more complex and wonderfully embroidered.
It would, of course, have been draped over the huge sleeve topsof the 1830's gown, to add extra femininity and accentuate the wide shoulders to make the waist look completely tiny!
Van-Dyked to the edges, with the most tiny of buttonhole stitches, the piece is absolutely typical of this pre-Victorian period of romance!
The pelerine is double layered, with a shorter top collar and then the larger 'cape' with lappet fronts.
The profuse embroidery is padded in places to make it stand proud of the surface. Very beautiful and fine work.
Condition of the embroidery is very good. Condition of the muslin is quite good, a little fragile with wear spots, but sound, except where it edges the embroidery, because the lightness of the fabric has not been able to cope with the density of the embroidery.
So, you will find expert patches of muslin to the underside of each lappet. [I think she tied them at the front, as this is where most damage can be found]Further tiny expert darns as well. Then more wear at the embroidery edges.
Wouldn't it be fab if we could find the lady who repaired it?! She could do a little more now!
A beautiful piece for the collector of textiles from the 'Romantic era'.
Size is approx 30" from lappet end to the other, across the neck. Back width 23" and back depth approx 8.5".
Do look at the other, simpler and better condition!
Please do take a look in my shop if you have the time!
