Cravat and neckstock

Neckstock 1802 link
Een hele mooie website!!..Andrew legt op een hele mooie manier uit hoe je een cravat en necktock draagt

steampunk outfit


Neckcloth 1800-1850, 40,6 cm link
Neckcloth 19th century, linnen, link
1840-1850, silk and paper, 68,6 cm, link
1830, silk and metal, link
1835, silk and metal
This is an elegant example of a stock, the standard neckwear for men in the early 19th century, to be worn over the high stand collar of the shirt. The styles of the 1830s were prescribed by fashionable dandies, such as Alfred Guillaume Gabriel, Count D'Orsay (1801-1852), a French emigrant who had relocated to England in 1829, and influenced artists and writers in wit and dress. The crisp and complete stock with a tailored bow was essential in fashionable formal dress. link

simplicity 9887

Gisteren naar de Elf Fantasy Fair geweest..Nick wilde graag als Elf..Ik heb voor hem een zwarte cape gemaakt (simplicity 9887). Het model was makkelijk te maken en het zit goed..Na meten dacht ik dat hij wel de XS zou passen..maar toch wel groot uitgevallen..dus mouwen en lengte aangepast. De bruine cape is gewoon een cirkel met ruimte voor zijn hoofd..Had nog knopen over die ik ooit bij een spijkerbroek gekregen heb..En natuurlijk elven oren!!
