An Authentic Victorian / Dickensian Era Ladies' Cape Crochet Pattern originally published in 1902!
This listing is for the PDF pattern only, not for the finished item. Great for historical village reenactors, opera, stage and theater costumers, students of historical fabric arts and those who JUST LOVE TO WEAR A TOTALLY UNIQUE, ONE-OF-A-KIND ACCESSORY!
A very Vanessa Ives style, as seen in the Victorian era Penny Dreadful series, Dr Who and many more fantastic fandom circles!
Great for Weddings, Proms, clubbing, fantasy role playing and much, much, more!
The pattern is reproduced via very time consuming scanning, with the woodcuts, metal engravings and text being restored for optimal reading and saved in PDF format to share with history buffs everywhere!
I literally have a house full of my collection of antique books and magazines from the mid-1800s to the 1960s. I'll never live long enough to share them all but I strive to list fresh-to-you, rare Antebellum, Civil War, Victorian, Edwardian, Gibson Girl, WWI, Flapper, Depression, WWII and Hippy era clothing pattern republications here!
