Difficulty: Intermediate   

The charming Marie Mantle is the perfect addition to your mid-late 18th century costuming closet - or your modern wardrobe!  This sweet mantle is based on images and extant examples of fashionable mantles worn from the mid-18th century to the end of the 1770s. Similar mantles were worn by less fashionable women well into the 19th century.

View A is a short mantle with rounded front points.

View B is a slightly longer mantle with wide triangular front points.

Both views can be made with or without a small sized hood with star pleating which creates fullness at the back of the hood. Both views are unlined.

The Marie can be made of solid fabric trimmed with a variety of pinked or hemmed trims or lace edging, or lace or net fabric trimmed with lace edging.

Instructions on working with lace and gauze to imitate the look of 18th century lace mantles, and on applying pinked & gathered trim and lace trim, are included.

Like all Scroop + Virgil's Fine Goods patterns the Marie Mantle pattern includes detailed user-friendly instructions on making the mantle using historical techniques.

Want more mantles?  The Marie also comes in a combined pattern with our other 18th century mantle patterns: the Charlotte and the Sophia.  Get all three patterns for the price of two!  Click here to go to the combined pattern.
