1877 - Fichu Mantelet

Quelle: Peterson´s Magazine 1877

"This style of mantelet is very fashionable in Paris, and is usually made of either cachemire des Indes or Sicilienne. It has the advantage of giving the shoulders and arms that compressed look, which appears to be aim of all the new mantels; and this is effected by knotting over the ends of the fichu closely in front of the waist. 
Our Pattern consists of two pieces - the front, which has square ends, and the fichu, which has round ends; they are joined at the neck, commencing by the two noches at the side of the paper, and continuing until the seam reaches the one noch. The trimmings may be either lace fringe, crimped bordering, ruching, etc."
